What your global neighbors are buying

Here is a very cool graphical representation of global spending patterns from the New York Times. Sounds boring but it's not, honest. Click around a bit.

[important bit of information -- those numbers are PER CAPITA, so population size of the country doesn't skew the results. I.E. just because the U.S. has a large population doesn't explain the humungo spending patterns depicted in the chart]

Enjoy learning random bits of information from the intartubes,
