Charting Progress ~ Per Capita GDP Doublings!

Lovely Economist infographic on rate of per capita GDP doublings...
"Average incomes in developing economies are growing more quickly than at any previous time in history according to a recent report by the McKinsey Global Institute. It took more than 150 years from the start of Britain's industrial revolution for GDP per person (measured at purchasing-power parity) to double from $1,300 to $2,600. [...] China did it in just twelve."
