Abstract

This paper is interested to visualize the behavior of complex economic phenomena from a multi-dimensional graphical perspective. The case study in this paper is the multi-dimensional graphical visualization of the U.S. economy from 1929 to 2008. To visualize the behavior of complex economic phenomena, we suggest the application of Multi-Dimensional Physical Spaces to plot different database or results from statistics and econometrics models simultaneously in the same graphical space. Finally, this paper is also interested to propose the uses of computer graphical animation. It is based on the construction of large number of slides join together through the production of a video. In our case, we are using the Microsoft movie maker software. It is to generate a real time effect to observe the behavior of several economic scenarios in constant movement into the same graphical space.
