Indexed, Freakonomics Edition

I am a fan of the blog Indexed, on which a young Ohio copywriter named Jessica Hagy creates sweet and simple graphical pictures, on index cards, that tell a story. The blog allows her, she writes, to “make fun of some things and sense of others. I use it to think a little more relationally without resorting to doing actual math.”

She will publish a book of her Indexed work in early 2008. In the meantime, she has agreed to create some Freakonomics-ish Indexed pieces for our blog. Because her pieces often seem to speak to each other, we’ll run them in pairs.

Here is the first pair. We hope you enjoy.
