## Tart-ure III

The German newspaper “Die Welt” has baked yet again: triple pies with bites taken out. Have a look.

*Source: “Die Welt”, 2013–01–17, page 13*.

Have a look at the axes: ounces is weight. Tons also. Therefore the German gold in New York weighs as much as in Paris, Frankfurt and London. Therefore the position of the x-axis is the same as on the y-axis. Therefore the pies lie on a diagonal.

The French are supposed to give us back our gold. Everything. Therefore the grey eating frame is 0 %, thus not there.

In the real world London is still there, where it belongs. Same with Paris. In the “Welt”*,* Paris is half in London. This is because the same scale is used twice.

The “Welt” has already baked pies, that can amount up to 120 % and 165 %. This time it has baked pies that are able to do even more: absolute and relative, today and later, parts of several pies. Not yet complicated enough? Have a look where the circles start: in Frankfurt and Paris at 6 am, in New York at 10 am, in London at 3:20 pm.

Here is how you could say it, if you are in a hurry: „In New York, Frankfurt, London and Paris are 45 %, 31 %, 13 %, 11 % of the 3391 tons of gold altogether. In the year 2020 there shall be 37 %, 50 %, 13 %, 0 %.“
