This is a month old , but I never got around to posting it. An amazingly beautiful effort.
I was reminded of this today  and it sets the stage for something I will post later today which uses a similar mapping presentation.
Watching the video  version or this version  paints a compelling picture of US unemployment. Notice how high the levels are in the west, rust belt and southeast and how strong the “sand state” unemployment situation was in 2007.
Next – try to imagine a US housing recovery with this sort of employment situation.
