Interesting graphic approach describing  the recent crisis from the Harvard Business Review:

Each big circle on the map represents GDP; the 3.6 trillion in Bailouts and the 9.4 trillion in Stimulus are reflected as a percentage of GDP in red and blue respectively . . .

Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.

    I wonder how the fraction of the u.s. bailouts of aig which landed in the german banking system as bailout show up on this chart. On both sides, on one side?

    I don’t get the stimulus % in the U.S. 34% of 1.42T= $4.8T. When did a $4.8T stimulus package get passed? Last I heard it was $0.7T. The 7.3% Bailout is about $1T and seems about right for what was passed.

    Totally agree, once again, Canada is not on the graph/chart/stats, I have to suppose that all is going well in my country, nothing to worry about, or I make my own research and draw my own circle. I suppose it would look like Australia.
    Canada the invisible up there country, way too cold.
