has anybody found a way or laymanâs guide to log graphs(âin context of losses)?

Nobody understands logarithms. LSE surveys (N=2000) suggest, people misread the graphical zipping (compression) of a curve as a sign of "flattening." The numerical ticks don't have a psychological effect: 1, 10, 100, 1000. It's as if the ticks weren't there.

And to add insult to injury, losses (and disease) over time are shown in upward (North East) trending graphs these days.
