Thanks to Rebel Resource I stumbled upon the Worldmapper. Worldmapper resizes world maps based on criteria such as population, land area, or injury deaths. I found three maps that highlight toy imports, immigration, and military spending. Clicking on the image will open up a pdf data sheet with interesting background information.
Toy Imports : The opposite side of the coin – toy exports – balloon South East Asia, particularly China. Interestingly, the negative press on Chinese toys is even hitting Chinese consumers. My step father recently watched a report about the rise in the purchase of foreign goods by Chinese consumers.
Immigration: United States receives 37% of the world’s immigration. Again the other side of the coin, emigration, shows Mexico ballooned to such an extent that the United States and Canada are not visible.
