On a 1 – 10 scale, we give this a 6.  This visual shows really neat information on the fall of interest rates as time goes on.  Starting from the 1300’s!  On this visual, though, we do not see a source indicated, various colors used throughout, and great detail on the axis.  The amount of information within one visual may be considered somewhat overwhelming to the viewer.
