Poland Trade Balance

The ‘Blog Audytorów Sledczych’ had two interesting Sankey-style diagrams.

The first is the trade balance of Poland for the month January 2014. Flows are in Euro (trade volume). There is a trade surplus of 176,4 million Euros. Unfortunately only the legend shows what the arrow colors mean, but it is not legible in this screenshot.

The American Trade Engine

Americans imported $1.95 trillion worth of goods and services in 2009, and exported $1.57 trillion worth. American crude oil imports totaled $189 billion in 2009--a figure equal to about half the trade deficit. The deficit aside, the United States is a robust exporter of a broad variety of goods and services. Click on the industry colours and lines below to see highlights.

The Fur Trade

The idea behind this infographic was the astonishing news that fur was 'back in fashion' and that many fur breeders in Europe were inviting top UK designers to travel over to their farms to work on the fur for their collections. They are also asking young designers to experiment with fur in their collections, something that would have been unheard of in recent years.

This graphic follows the fur trade from the animal to the buyers and through to the designers and finally the Shops that sell it. It shows just how many animal pelts it takes to make a fur coat, which animal and how this is done.
