Pseudovariety

Categories: Categorie 1 | Étiquettes : , ,

It's not only the banks who are into pseudovariety these days.  As I was browsing through that wonderful site, Visual Complexity, I ran into an image that looks like a work by a Japanese contemporary artist.  However, a closer look at the cluster diagram of Philip Howard and Chris Duvall revealed the not so surprising fact that three firms control 89% of the U.S. soft drink business.  Such a lovely bubbly diagram about products that are basically nothing but water and sweeteners.  Variety is supposed to be the spice of life, but I think perhaps they're overdoing it here!  Reminds me of my daughters' amazement on first seeing an aisle-full of hundreds of salad dressings on one of their trips to the States.
