I forgot to link to it yesterday, but using data a colleague collected Andy Hall made a helpful visualization of the tariff data he put into a previous post. If, like me, you have a little trouble imagining numbers in proportion to each other it’s a great way to see just how incredibly New York (and to a vastly lesser extent, other Northern ports) dominated revenue generation.
It also transpires that Craig Swain had the same numbers a few years ago, and a broader a treatment of the issue.
Update: The previous version of this post mistakenly credited the visualization to Andy’s colleague. Sorry about that.
