Jump back to the left. Compare the heights. Jump two times to the right. Find another column. Note the height again. Jump to the left again. Compare the heights. Oh. Forgot the color?

I see. They’re trying to show the development of the BRICS countries. In detail. The development, though. You only see this if the years are side by side, not the countries.


Redesign: me.

Funny: If you want to see developments, it’s sometimes better not to sort by time.

Not so funny: Two out of three values are speculation, but not marked as such. 2011 isn’t over yet. 2012 is still to come.
