With the bank stress tests now mercifully over (the banks passed!), the Wall Street Journal provides the interactive graphic below to stress out its readers in interpreting the results.
To be honest, I didn't really give it a fair shake - after selecting a bank and then mousing over the main part of the graphic, there were so many moving parts that a tension headache was felt quickly coming on, so, for health reasons, it was thought better to go look for a cartoon somewhere instead.
From Tom Toles at the Washington Post:
For more on the stress test results see this WSJ article - up to $75 billion more is needed.
A quite sensible graphic from CNN/Money can be found here.
