Capitalist_Network by Barbara Hahn, Christine Zimmermann

Concept and design of a full-page visualization on the topic of economy for the weekly newspaper DIE ZEIT. The visualization shows an interdependent network of 147 firms dominating the world economy (133 of them are from the finance or real estate sector). These firms control nearly 40 percent of the entire wealth of the transnational companies.
The bigger the knot the bigger the profit of a company. Arrows show minority interests.
