Interesting graphic representation
This is a two page spread from the current issue of The Atlantic Monthly cataloging the progress, or lack of same, of lots of haphazardly chosen stuff from 2000 to today, though some of the "current" stats are from 2007 or 2006. Some things showed improvement. For instance, there are less wars now than in 2000, but they don't give any idea of how many people died in those wars in the respective years. CEOs are being paid less now, though I don't know if bonus pay is factored in. Apple has had a good century so far. GM, not so much.
It's definitely worth a click on the picture to get the bigger, more readable view. Let me know what stands out to you in the comments.
