PostSubject: The Lovely Graph Thread   Mon Mar 24, 2008 3:37 am

This place needs to get less scriptural and more visual! I've started this thread so people can post up their favourite economic graphs and charts.

One of mine is the following real GDP growth chart from the ESRI's website:

http://www.esri.ie/irish_economy/

To me it illustrates the astonishing and transformative experience our economy has experienced. It is the Celtic Tiger on a bar chart.

I added a .png extension to your address.

PostSubject: Yep, THAT graph again   Mon Mar 24, 2008 4:25 am

This one I came across last October which looking for stuff on petrol consumption. I think it's still very alarming though I've looked at it and posted many times and places since. To me it simply proves that the States has such a dependency on oil that weaning themselves off their addiction to it (or not) will be pre-eminent in the story of the near future.

Hands to the Pump

You're the man I wanted! How the hell did you get those ESRI graphs to show up, like you did on the p.ie thread of many moons ago? They're all on feckin' internal for me and I can't put the image up as an image, the most I can do is link it with a URL. I would like it to be visual, not textual!

On topic, that graph is fascinating. I've never met an Economist chart which hasn't made me stop and think. They're salutory viewing.

On your internal graph I guessed at the image extension - .png. Yes a graph or a map does it for me too. And a spreadsheet to an extent. The www.worldmapper.org maps were great for information - remember them? A bit of a twist on the pie charts. Charts can contain a whole heap of information at one glance... very handy.

Er, that looks to me like the Celtic Tiger ran from 1995-2000 pretty much. It was a transformative burst alright, but it doesn't exactly disprove the claim that we've been living on Greenspan's credit pump since then.

Steady growth cannot continue forever though ibis as we have learned from this hour-long series of lectures

Well, if you were to over-lay the Fed's interest rate chart on this, it would. Interest rates were 4-6% from 1999 to 2000 when wwe experienced our highest growth. Interest rates were reduced to 1-2% through 2003 and 2004, our weakest years of economic expansion. If anything, the expansionary instincts of Greenspan reduced our rate of economic growth.

Anyway, I'd like to see your favourite graph, ibis. I'm sure you have lots of good ones.

World military spending

The Chinese probably get a lot more bang for their buck though, would I be right?

Here's another graph showing the Celtic Tiger's transformative effects:



It's truly astonishing.

Three likkle worldmapper maps
http://www.worldmapper.org/

This thumbnail is of world population represented proportionately by land area - looks half normal


Toys Exports



Toys Imports


Concluding that America and the UK are the world's biggest importers of Chinese toys...

WorldMapper, *sigh*, is there anything they can't map? They're fantastic. The maps say so much more than raw basic tables of figures.

I'm sort of missing the point of a graph over time though by putting the worldmapper maps there ... I'll find something appropriate eventually.

I've taught myself how to lift those internal graphs off ESRI etc. as well. You right-click on the pic, click "Properties", copy the URL/HTML line of alphanumeric text and paste it here enclosed in [img][/img] tags. My TQ went up another point! Yay!

I got a lovely graph on mt desk today. I have the most expensive portfolio in the department at the moment! Well I did until I delegated some cases out this evening. It's not so expensive now. Sad

As Mod, I'll be able to sort you out in any case. Just keep on topic and you'll be grand.

It's a graph which is intriguing enough to be included in any thread. I'd like to see your more economics-focused graphs. That one is good.

Even if you allow for the fact that the graph doesnt show how GDP has grown over the 500 years I still find it quite interesting.

Here's a very worthy addition to this thread, and yes, it's from the Economist! The capo di tutti capi of mass media measurers!



Food for thought.

In my opinion, the graph below is the best chart of an asset bubble on the web at this moment in time:



It truly captures what markets go through of occasion.

I've resurrected this thread for an amazing graph the Economist has on its website of the cost of robotic machines relative to labour costs, it seems that people are a rip off for manufacturers:

Ard Taoiseach - have you got the key to that graph? it is very interesting. Does it allow one to compare labour costs with robotic costs per hour?
