It REALLY Is a Small World… For the Corporate Elite

Wonderful graphics by Baptiste Coulmont on the networks composed of individuals (red dots) sitting on administrative councils of companies (blue lozenges) listed in the CAC40 stock index (the French equivalent of the Dow Jones, if you will).

Most of the names on the graphs will be familiar for people who follow French corporate barons and their companies.

Coulmont is looking for more recent data and thinks he has caught the “reticular flu”… a predicament where the victim feels compelled to turn everything into networks with neat graphs.
