# Stagflation Graph

## A graph created to visualize moments of stagflation from 1970 to 2008. The graph, rather than plotting the GDP and inflation rate seperately, represents the variance between those two values. Stagflation occurs when inflation rates are high and GDP is low, therefore the larger the distance between the two, the more the graph is fleshed out in those areas.

The graph was designed to occupy a small space in a New York Times article, making legibility at a small size a priority.
