Published by CNNMoney and shown on CNN in 2013, this piece was shared over 7,000 times on Facebook and generated over 2,000 tweets. It shows salaries accumulating second by second, dramatically comparing the incomes of Kobe Bryant, then-ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson, a teacher, and a minimum wage earner, among others.

The narrated animation was written up on several sites, including Popular Science and Fast Company's Co.Design blog, and was selected to be part of an exclusive Time Warner exhibition in New York organized in association with Future of Storytelling.

The project was also linked by Swissmiss and digg, and was nominated for a Loeb Award, the most prestigious honor in business journalism. Look around on the visualization page for more interesting projects.
