Visualisation Of The Credit Crisis
Most news agencies are busy drawing up charts to understand and analyse the extent of damage caused to various financial houses in the dawn of the credit crisis. The Information Aesthetics blog lines up some that try to communicate the mechanics and meaning behind it all. Like the detailed one from BBC News, which allows you to see exactly “How it went wrong” in the course of events. It even shows how the sub prime lending affect just one city, once the sub-prime capital of America, Cleveland. In various sections, the graphs also demonstrate how the crisis went nationwide, the housing price crash, the credit crunches, bank losses and finally the bond market collapse. The Information Aesthetics bloglist also features depictions by NYTimes, News Visual, and interactive diangrams by Portfolio.com.
