Unemployment Visualized As A Zombie Outbreak



At some point, we’re going to have to stop referring to every red-hued outbreak map as being zombie-like, but this is not that point. It’s nearly Halloween, the #2 movie in the nation is Zombieland, and yesterday the president of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis warned that unemployment may exceed 10% before the end of the year. This is the appropriate way to view unemployment today.

For added fun, why not play the song “re: Your Brains” by Jonathan Coulton while you watch the map animation? The catchy song about white collar employment and zombiedom somehow makes the doom and gloom easier to take.
