Hey friend,
I tried it as a flow chart as well, it's here:


I never really succeeded having all the info in it:
-how much
-from where to where
-in which timeframe
-how much is left as of now

We will keep trying.

Whoa, this racetrack makes me dizzy. The diverging lines for dates seem like they should indicate something along the bottom "axis" of the chart, until you realize it's no axis but two endpoints. like the covers of a book, opened flat.

The Sankey diagram is much better.


Nick: Thanks for the link. The flow chart/sankey version is better. Of the items you listed, I am not sure the time frame is of sufficient concern to worry about. The merger flow chart is one that incorporates a time line and that could be a starting point.
