I think the visual of government spending as size of box is one of the classics of the type.

Not only does it perfectly do its job - quickly, clearly and concisely conveying its message; but also perfectly highlights the need of visualisation. We all hear these figures and would think we all get it, but when we see it like this we realise how little we truly do understand the data when presented as just numbers or newspaper quotes. A great presentation!
