Call up monthly slivers of data and related news for 6 financial market indicators (dow, treasury yields, libor, commercial yields, CDS spreads, mortgage backed spreads).
Here is this month’s update of one of my favorite presentations of economic indicators, from Russell Investments. Includes trending, useful popups, drill down links to historical data, and good descriptions of each indicator. It’s really everything an economic dashboard should look like. (ok, maybe they could animate it over time.)

Always depressing, this version of the debt clock includes running values of many different kinds of debt, GDP, trade deficits, unfunded liabilities, and other ways we are shooting ourselves in the foot every day. The “about” section is pretty bleak on source details (to put it mildly). Thanks to my friend Jenny Butler for the link.
One more July 4th themed infographic to end the weekend. Spotted by CoolInfographics.

From the Neolithic till today, filter by country, zoom in to specific historic events, or take a journey based on certain topics. Very well done, from the BBC.
Updated June 24th. The best part is the lower chart showing the latest data for each of the 11 “leading indicators”.
Ok, obviously it’s NY Fed day at ChartPorn. Interactive PDF files (click on events to jump to more details) provide a detailed list of policy actions and events. It is supposedly updated the 1st of every month.

Have you taken the time to follow the detailed science behind the global warming debate? Me neither. But I’m starting to read the “Global Climate Change Impacts in the United States” report, which has a number of very effective data visualizations, in addition to laying out all the different climate change arguments. (Thanks to my friend Brad Johnson for pointing out the report.)
An addictive collection of beautiful charts, graphs, maps, and interactive data visualization toys -- on topics from around the world.
