    Wow! Clare, this is fantastic! Specially if looking at the US defence budget, the global pharmaceutical market, the cost of war in Iraq and the BP revenue.

  • Clare Herbert on 19th July 2010:

    Thanks Luan. Information is Beautiful (which I linked to above) is a fantastic resource for informative graphics and this one is one of my faves. I love this one ( on methane emissions and climate change too.
