Graphs like this from the New York Times and this from Business Insider have been circulating all over Facebook, along with lots of other charts and info on how bad inequality has gotten in the United States.
I literally cannot log info Facebook without being hit with another graph that backs up the arguments made by the Occupy Wall Street movement. But 99% of these graphs relate to the United States. There is a dearth of info for the UK.
It’s time to remedy this.
I’m just going to put a list here of info and links people have sent me when I requested info:
Major sources of info:1
So what do we need?
Well, for a start we need someone to find interesting info that can be turned into infographics (by tests forge richards). We need info that particularly stands out, or would look good as a graph contrasting with previous decades.
Second, we need people to help turn the info into pretty info-graphics. I’m willing to help with this bit, as I have my head in enough technical data already.
So come on leftie nerds – let’s do something useful than just come up with slogans eh?
