It’s all in the charts

sweet chart, dude

Want to make your dry, academic white paper more sexy?  Add a really sweet chart like the one above (click on the picture to zoom in).

This is taken from an essay called “The Soviet Collapse: Grain and Oil“, and it’s actually pretty damn compelling reading.  I dig the argument, and I’m printing this chart out for my wall.

Link again from the still amazing Marc Andreessen blog.  I know it’s bad etiquette to quote repeatedly from the same source, but he’s probably got the hottest blog going right now.  Jump on the bandwagon
