This awesome graph from GOOD.is uses data from the CEPR report that Kris Warner, Sarika Gupta, and I wrote last summer.

I suspect that a graphic like this has more impact than the much longer reports from CEPR and other sources that supplied the raw material for producing it. Of course, GOOD.is couldn’t make the graphic without the underlying research, but, still, it makes me wonder about where I should focus my energies.
