All of Inflation's Little Parts


The New York Times Online often impresses me with its great online interactive graphics.  I noticed this one earlier this week.  It is an info graphic to visualize the spending changes that are affecting inflation in the US.  Each shape represents a different category; showing how much the average American spends and how spending in that category has changed over the past year.  I like that they are playing on the idea of a soap bubble for their graphic... very inflation appropriate.
