A Drug-Selling Gang's Finances Tweet
In 2000, The Quarterly Journal of Economics published an awesome econ paper (no that is not an oxymoron) by Steven Levitt and Sudhir Venkatesh. It not only covers the economics of selling drugs but includes incredible commentary like,
"Given the risk of violence, face-to-face bargaining is difficult because the opposing gang leader may simply kill you."
The point of the following charts is to visualize super cool data in a way that is hopefully just as cool. If you have questions about anything, please refer to the original paper, as it explains methodologies etc. much better than I could.
