If you read Business Insider you know we love charts. Pretty much all of them. Throw it in Excel, show us something interesting, something we hopefully haven't seen before, and you've gotten our attention.
So we reached out to some of the world's most influential analysts, economists, hedge- funders and traders and asked them a simple question: what charts are you always keeping your eye on?
Their responses were surprisingly varied, from slides that delved into S&P earnings, to another that broke down US demographics. and another that found new and improved ways to look at European borrowing, and much much more.
