Money Matters

Money Chart is an info graphic that was released in November 2011 by xkcd called the xkcd : money chart. It brings together humongous amount of data in one place and claims to have done a research of nearly $58.73 trillion around the world.

Money chart

The author has himself included some of the very interesting facts that are evident from the chart. Some of the things that I found interesting:

1. The average production worker wage has gone up by just $ 0.1 from 1965 to 2007. In the same period, the average CEO pay has gone up by $4930.

2. The comprehensive list of all the items the singer in “If I had $1000000” would buy you in order to win your love.

3. Total wealth:

$82,000 – JK Rowling had she been a rapper!!! (actual being – $ 1000 000 000 which is close to the wealth of five wealthiest rappers combined – $ 1 250 000 000)

$6 500 000 000 – Bruce Wayne (Batman)
$33 500 000 000 – Scrooge McDuck (Duck tales)

4. The flower cost for Price William and Kate Middleton’s wedding $800,000 – this can but you a typical home, a good sports car, a twenty week long Hawaiian vacation and much more.

5. Cost of Major wars :
$ 334 000 000 000 – World War I

$ 4104 000 000 000 – World War II

Discover the dominance of dollars!!!
