That's quite the interesting comparison and observation on those two charts. Cool!
Stay tuned as I get more familiar with sites like the IMF who have decent global data.

I see someone else gave you some decent comeuppance on your log(gerhead) charts so I'll leave it mostly in other capable hands... ;)
