I’ve written about the GDP before: The GDP Spiral: Contraction, Recession, Depression. It’s still one of my favourite posts, although my closing comment about Angelina Jolie’s pre-emptive double mastectomy is now a bit dated… As is the reference to the Good Wife.

Ah well – it was fun at the time!

Anyway, I found this fairly magnificent 82 second visualisation that explains the GDP concept, and the difference between Nominal GDP and Real GDP, in shades of buttery beige, orange and a palette of pastel greens.

Check it out.
