I just came across this Washington Post article titled '40 maps that explain the world'. Pretty interesting for big picture information, particularly for insight for me about the countries in which I'm supporting projects. The two economic inequality maps had an oddity: the first represents the US and China as the same, while the second shows China as "less". Apparently, no more than 0.04 GINI coefficient units out of 0.35 total. Naturally. The more I stared at this, the more skeptical I became, BUT it's still interesting in general.
Economic inequality around the world
