All of the Worlds Money and Markets in One Visualization – Enjoy this graphic? You can also find it in our new infographic book its available until Oct 31st 2017 on Kickstarter. All of the Worlds Money and Markets in One Visualization This infographic is the updated version of our best-known piece from The Money Project an ongoing collaboration with Texas Precious Metals. It was first published in late 2015. Millions billions and trillions When we talk about the giant size of Apple the fortune of Warren Buffett or the massive amount of global debt accumulated all of these things sound large but they are actually extremely different in magnitude. Thats why visualizing things spatially can give us a better perspective on money and markets. How Much Money Exists? This infographic was initially created to show how much money exists in its different forms. For example to highlight how much physical cash there is in comparison to broader measures of money which include saving and checking account deposits. Interestingly what is considered money depends on who you are asking. Are the abstractions created by Central Banks really money? What about gold bitcoins or other hard assets? A New Meaning However since we first released this infographic in 2015 All the Worlds Money and Markets has taken on a different meaning to us and many others. Its a way of simplifying a complex universe of currencies assets and other financial instruments in a way that people can understand. Numbers represented in the data visualization range from the size of the above-ground silver market ($17 billion) to the notional value of all derivatives ($1.2 quadrillion as a high-end estimate). In between those two extremes weve added many other familiar measures such as the GDP of California the value of equities the real estate market along with different money supply metrics to give perspective. The end result? A visually pleasing but enlightening new way to understand the vast universe of global assets. To get All the Worlds Money in book or poster form go to the Kickstarter page now.
