I really like this animated graph with commentary by Hans Rosling, showing 200 years of world economic development. More power to him for making economics interesting!

He consistently likes to show that the nations of the Global South are not so far behind as some in the North might think (although it must be said, Africa is trending the slowest). This is going to be a great century as poverty declines and living standards improve in the world’s largest nations.
