That’s the Heritage Foundation’s title for its top five financial charts/diagrams of 2013.  They’re very informative, illustrating key facts about our economy and budget in concise, easy-to-understand formats;  and they’re also very authoritative, using official figures and sources rather than guesswork or politically biased conjecture.

There are more graphics at the link.  Recommended reading.
