Wall Street Journal Innovation
For those of us who are challenged by the pace of news and information or the great majority of us who simply do not have the time to dig into anything, The Wall Street Journal has an answer. Over the last six months subscribers to The WSJ have been encouraged to sign up for “The Daily Shot”. This is a graphical summary of the current news in the form of charts and graphs with a link to the longer article. After “speed reading” the Wall Street Journal this way for several weeks I am amazed at how well it paints a picture of macro concepts like the flattening of the yield curve, the growth of debt in China as a percentage of GDP, tightening of employment markets, currency swings, trends in the M&A markets and growth of Bitcoin.
I highly recommend subscribing to The Wall Street Journal just to get The Daily Shot. Here are a few examples:
I will continue to use this convenient source of information for my blogs as well as a general understanding of trends in finance and commerce throughout the world. This is the new “Heard on the Street” column in graphs and pictures for people with attention deficit disorder.
