Networks of Independent Hedge Fund Directors

Net­works of Inde­pen­dent Hedge Fund Directors

The Shadow Influ­ence Project, led by Janine R. Wedel, uni­ver­sity pro­fes­sor at George Mason Uni­ver­sity, has devel­oped a cutting-edge tool that dis­plays i
n vivid, mul­ti­di­men­sional detail how today’s top power bro­kers hold sway, cap­tur­ing the very build­ing blocks of influence.

We invite you to explore our inter­ac­tive visu­al­iza­tion of the net­works of retired gen­er­als and admi­rals.   This rep­re­sen­ta­tion shows how the uni­verse of retired gen­er­als and admi­rals has grown and become more densely inter­con­nected in post-military retirement.

Our data starts with the year 1990 with 25 offi­cers who retired dur­ing that year and moves through 2008.  The con­nec­tions shown in the net­work rep­re­sent post mil­i­tary con­nec­tions through orga­ni­za­tions and busi­nesses.   Click Here to begin explor­ing.
