The Economist recently posted today’s daily chart and it’s a mixed bag. I’d love to see this index mashed up with other indices on war, corruption, desertification, pollution, population growth, and I’m sure you could name many more. Any of our readers have the skill set to make this happen?

Since 1990, two-thirds of developing countries have reduced their populations’ hunger levels. But twenty-nine countries still suffer from ‘alarming’ levels of hunger.”

What kind of colour ramp is that to use on this map? It makes no sense. In fact it misinforms. To look at this one would think that ALL the countries in red suffered varying degrees of rise in hunger, whereas only 4 do. Sheesh!
