This is an awesome video demonstrating the power of visualization.
Wouldn't it be great if all statistical presentations could be shown this way. One thing I wounder about is what about inflation? Was it incorporated into these numbers?
Regardless, this is the power of a great presentation. It tells a story in such a way that all can understand. Of course, a great presentation is accurate, not misleading, which goes without saying.
I often wish I could present like this. Perhaps one day. Regardless, now compare this to just presenting statistical data. Like when someone reads off the mean and standard deviation. Think about that for a minute.
Now you must watch this video to get the feel for how awesome he presents a ton of data. Well Enjoy.
