Visualization of the Week: Occupy George

Infographics printed on $1 bills circulate Occupy Wall Street's message.

The website OccupyGeorge, an extension of the Occupy Wall Street movement, has come up with a novel twist for its visualizations about wealth inequality.

What’s clever about these visualizations is not so much the data or its presentation, but rather the material on which the visualizations are printed: actual $1 bills. The website includes templates so these visualizations can be stamped onto physical money. The message then circulates with the bills.
