The Decade in Business - 120 Images and Articles

Through Jeffery Hill's English Blog I recently learned about the Guardian's Decade in Business infographic. The Decade in Business is comprised of 120 images representing various business stories from the past ten years. Click on any image in the infographic to learn more about that story. Most of the stories are based in Europe, but some have a more global basis.

Applications for Education
Teachers of economics may find The Decade in Business to be a good reference for students studying the ups and downs of the economy in the 21st century.
