You might think that the dismal science has very little to offer on matters of the heart. But I disagree. And so does Elisabeth Fosslien. She’s a brilliant young analyst interested in design, math, and economics. Yes, she’s the sort of person who dressed up as a bear market for Halloween. All this makes her the perfect person for economics-themed data visualization. And so when #FedValentines lit up Twitter last week, she decided to go a step further, and provide the perfect valentine for the economist in your life. Make your selection, below:

These are brilliant! And thanks to Elisabeth for both producing them, and allowing me to share them with you. Now is there a book in this for her? I would love to see a chart-of-the-day calendar of econo-wonky goodness.
And if you enjoyed this, you might also enjoy some of Elisabeth’s past work, including:
- Statistical Insights into the Typical University of Chicago Student
- Pomona in 47 Charts (her undergraduate alma mater)
- I am Tired of Giving You the Same Advice
Happy Valentine’s Day!
