Please mind the gap

I’m a sucker for visual representations of complex data sets – largely because I’ve always been rubbish at maths. The Google gang have just put out a new tool designed just for folk like me who’d like to look at how various economic statistics correlate against each other over time for all the major countries on the planet. It’s hard to describe accurately, so just go and play with the Gapminder World and kiss goodbye to an hour or two.
