Using Visuals to Explain Complex Ideas

When matters are complex, word explanations often make them seem even more complex. In these instances, visuals can help out. For example, taming the national debt is a complex issue. Here is a 90 second video that explains the enormity of the problem. For a further examination of the problem, here is a posting from my colleague Jim Maule on his  blog, “Mauled Again.”

(Please note: My purpose here is  not to stir up a  political debate, but only to offer an example of the power of a good visual aid.)
