Debtris (Visualization of Debt)

How does the cost of the Iraq War compare to US credit card debt? What about the worldwide costs of the financial crises from the late 2000s to the present? How do those costs compare to African nations’ debts?

Information is Beautiful provides those answers and more in his first animation, entitled “Debtris“. I have embedded both the US (dollars) and UK (pounds) versions below.

Did any of the figures surprise you?
