Global Economic Growth Through The Last Half-Century

Last week, a Redditor by the name of allattention made the following animated map, plotting both the GDP growth for the world in the timeline and the yearly GDP change per capita in all the countries. The data shown runs from 1961 until 2016 and was extracted from the World Bank. The GIF shown is only thirteen seconds long, and shows just how destructive the 2009 financial crash was. Moreover, in the full animation, data from the Russia Federation and most of Eastern Europe is only shown from 1994 onwards, since the data brought out from the CCCP was not trusted. The entire animation can be found here.
