Here’s another set of cool graphical charts comparing China with the world. There are 4 charts which show how China’s provinces and special regions match up with countries in population, GDP, GDP per capita and exports. The statistics are impressive but not too surprising (that said I am shocked Inner Mongolia has such a high GDP per capita). Hong Kong and Macau and Shanghai still outperform the rest of China by far in GDP per capita and much of China is still equivalent to third world countries. In an embarassing indicator of the disparity of these two giants, the country whose GDP per capita is almost equivalent to China’s poorest province is India. Of course, China’s GDP (PPP) per capita is low as well at US$7,400, though still higher than India’s.
