Best of the web in 2016

These are the 20 charts/images that either described 2016 best, or those that I think are just spot on in a different way. This list has been compiled from this year’s shortlist of more than 160 candidates, which in turn has been collected from the weekly Best of the Week overview. Thanks to all the sources, but an extra special thanks to http://www.businessinsider.com, http://www.ritholtz.com, http://www.economist.com and https://ftalphaville.ft.com/.

And here is the final list.
