Very cool morphing Fedex Cartogram
An info-graphic type map, pretty cool.
If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.
-J. Robert Oppenheimer (father of the atom bomb) alluding to The Bhagavad Gita (Chapter 11, Verse 32)

That is pretty slick. I wish I knew what they meant by "Labor-Productivity" because I find it hard to believe that Americans are at the top of the line....I mean seriously, practically everything is made someplace else? Just what are we producing? I guess it's all in how they count the numbers.
Remember: The first rule of Statistics is that Statistics can lie.
“When it’s over and you look in the mirror, did you do the best that you were capable of? If so, the score does not matter. But if you find that you did your best you were capable of, you will find it to your liking.” -John Wooden

Productivity is output per input. In the case of labor, input is man-hours. Americans have had high productivity for a long time and it keeps increasing. Mind you, when you replace eight plant workers with eight robots and one human to maintain the robots, you've increased productivity eightfold, so it isn't an unqualified good thing.
