Lee Arnold, a plumber from LA, has developed a wonderful graphical way of communicating the behavior of complex systems, inspired by Odum’s work, which he calls Ecolanguage. He explains banking.

He also tackles some spicier political topics, such as Gore’s Assault on Reason, or Social Security. Finally, he uses this graphic language to explain heavier philosophical issues such as semiotics in New Chart.

While the symbols have been used before, Lee’s animations and narration make it a great way of communicating quantitative ideas. He should find a publisher and produce a DVD!
