How the world would look if it were measured by its wealth.
Using data from the World Bank Development Indicators, Global Finance‘s map shows us what the world will look like in 2015 – that is if it were inflated to the size of their economic wealth. Once again, the need to spur growth in Africa is not just evident, but necessary.
What does this mean?
This map clearly shows the lack of projected wealth in Africa by year 2015. Surprisingly, the most important factor in this equation is China. The country is growing at an incredible rate, and will soon be the leading economy in the world. China will soon dominate it's largest economic neighbor, the United States of America. While China growing so vastly and quickly, Africa is left shriveling in poverty, disease and crippled as a direct result of a lack of utilized resources.
