Visualizing the Global Economy

Visualizing the Global Economy | PLASTICITIES  « Between matter and form, between experience and consciousness, the active plasticity of the world » | Scoop.it
The graphic above (Voronoi diagram) represents the relative size of each country’s economy in terms of nominal GDP: the larger the area, the larger the size of the economy. The areas are further divided into three sectors: services, industrial, and agricultural. The US economy is mostly composed of companies engaged in providing services (79.7% compared to the global average of 63.6%), while agriculture and industry make up smaller-than-average of portions of the economy (1.12% and 19.1% compared to averages of 5.9% and 30.5%).

"Political geography is not determinant anymore, because cities are more important."

Emily Mikus's curator insight, April 25, 2017 11:35 AM
This article is about cities being important in political geography and it relates to our class because we just learned about whenever you go to calculate the number of people of that are a certain ethnicity in a certain region or area, you look in the cities. This also relates because we are learning about political geography in this unit. I believe this scoop and the statements in it, they are true and definitely go along with this new unit. They also open my eyes to some hings I've never thought of before.

This article relates to our chapter because it talks about political boundaries, in my opinion the world is way more connected than it used to be because of global trading, traveling, ect..
