NYTimes: Hope vs. Crisis

    Newer Older

    This is a visualization of the frequency of the words 'hope' and 'crisis' in the New York Times, between 1981 and 2009.

    The visualization reads like a clock, where 12pm is 1981 and 12 midnight is January 1, 2009.

    Interestingly, the word 'crisis' has surpassed 'hope' on only a handful of occasions. Most cleary, in August of 1990 in April of 1999, and most clearly and substantially - right now.
