Google economics/development application

Google’s being clever again. This gapminder tool is a great time waster if you are even vaguely curious about the rest of the world. If you want to know what effect wars have on an economy, then highlight Rwanda and watch its fortunes over the last thirty years. Or highlight UK and Ireland, press the animation and witness the Republic overtake the UK on GNP. More at gapminder.org (just scroll down).
