Lies, damned lies, and a chart: Are you committing chart abuse?

Lies, damned lies, and a chart

 

You know how I feel about charts and I could argue my opposition’s side, too. My main point is that a chart records, that cannot be argued.   Charts can even be self fulfilling prophecies. Charts are very useful and they need to be studied. There is not a day that goes by that I do not look at a chart.   But, a single chart does not add context.  With information becoming almost worthless, the only advantage is change.  I am not saying the past is not important because it is.  But the money is in the context.
