Some interesting charts to make you think

What is the economic centre of the world?  This chart aims to show where it is, where it has been and where it is going (hint: further East)

 
A few weeks ago I noted that more auto sales were finance-centred.  It is because finance is available (and with low interest rates cheap).  Do we ever learn anything?
 


Think your internet is too slow?  Then move to South Korea

Ahead of the Twitter IPO, an interesting chart.  Facebook currently appears to have more of a hold over its users.  It is really true that 70% of Twitter followers don't access their account and only 8% 'continuously'? 

Finally, the headline inflation rates in the West are low but as per this chart of utility prices in the UK, underlying costs for consumers continue to go up
