Jason Pearson on Economy Map 2.0
In this video, Jason Pearson of TRUTHStudio explains the latest version of Economy Map, a fascinating (and downloadable) exercise in information visualization:
“Economy Map simultaneously displays the impacts of all 480 major industry sectors in the United States economy from three perspectives: direct impacts (generated by each sector);
intermediate (direct and upstream) impacts; and final consumption impacts (in response to consumer or government demand). These perspectives help users to identify which sectors may be candidates for regulation, voluntary partnerships, or green purchasing approaches.”
Here, Pearson talks about this potentially powerful new tool and the various contexts in which it could be applied.
