Showing the Economy Through Illustrations

The above illustration shows the ramping up of volume of trades on the FSTE starting in late 1997. There is an economic purpose for these markets, but at that volume is it really weeding out the wheat from the chaff which is the point?

But I really wanted to call out the blog Visualizing Economics . It, like Flowing Data , shows stats in an illustrative way. It helps tell the story of the stats.

About benleeson
My name is Ben Leeson. I currently work for a large financial company in IT. I went to school at Marist College in Poughkeepsie, NY. I graduated with a B.S. in Business Administration concentrating in HR. Professor William Brown taught me and I enjoyed his classes; even acquiring an appreciation for just about all things HR. I didn’t pursue a job in that field after college but I’ve kept up with it. This blog will further my fascination with all things HR. I hope to grow my knowledge of the area through thoughtful writings and spirited feedback. I will attempt to have a fairly routine style so anyone reading can come to expect certain segments. Please excuse my incorrect grammar and occasional misspelling.
