Xan Gregg and I have been at it for a number of years. To celebrate Pi Day today, I am ridding the world of one pie chart.

Here is a pie chart that is found on Wikipedia:

Wiki_20_Largest_economies_pie_chart.pdf

Here is the revised chart:

Redo_worldeconomypie

It's been designed to highlight certain points of interest.

I find the data quite educational. These are some other insights that are not clear from the revised chart:

  • Japan's economy is larger than Germany's
  • Russia's economy is smaller than that of Germany, Italy, India, Brazil, or South Korea
  • China and Japan combined have GDP (probably) larger than Western Europe
  • Turkey, Netherlands, Switzerland, South Africa are in the Top 20

PS. Xan re-worked a radar chart this year. (link)
