From war and inflation to food and cargo, charts chronicle volatile year


A strong chart that distills a compelling visualisation of our world goes a long way towards helping illustrate what’s happening in the world’s economies and markets.

That’s why our Chart of the Week blog series features a new way to look beyond the numbers. Today’s edition compiles top 10 by readership so far in 2022.

From cargo prices and food costs to unrest, uncertainty, war, and inflation, these most-read blog posts, reflect the eventful and often tumultuous year it’s already been.
