You’ll need an FT.com subscription to see it, but they have a nice presentation of where bank “spoils” (profits+staff pay) has been going to. Below are Bank of America and Citigroup.

The Financial Times has created a giant videographic project in NYC’s Grand Central Station. Check out details about the installation and watch some of the videos (on business and the global economy) at http://ftgraphicworld.ft.com. Has anyone seen it yet in person?

The FT takes an insightful look at British household disposable income by generation – examining the long held belief that each generation is better off than the previous one. That notion has been true – until the most recent one. I think putting age on the x-axis was brilliant. Anyone want to generate this for the USA?

The Financial Times has pulled together some interactive visualizations of world demographics as we approach 7 billion people. I would have liked to see the population pyramids for more countries. The fertility/education graph is a bit shocking.

What is shocking to me is that there are 12 states with no shortfall.

Interactive comparison of bank market capitalization, income, and employees. The data are interesting, but the color selection could use more contrast, and the representation of negative values for net income is just bizarre.

The Financial Times surveyed 5000+ alumni from the top 50 MBA programs in the world and mapped out where they came from, where they went to school, and where they ended up. It’s slightly confusing at first, because they do not map all of the students at once – it shows only one country of origin at a time. Still, it’s very cool if you pay attention to where the dots flow when you change categories. (related article)

The FT created an interactive bar chart of the IMF’s COFER data on foreign currency holdings.  Watching the growth since 2006 is particularly stunning. Design wise, the dynamic resorting of the countries is an interesting variation.

Posted at the same time was a map of China’s imports with details clickable by country. This is all part of the FT’s in depth “China Shapes the World” feature.

A pretty slick interactive look at the numbers from the FT (though I’m not sure what some of the subtle animations really accomplish).
