The Globe of Economic Complexity
The globe of economic complexity dynamically maps out the entire world production of goods to create an economic landscape of countries around the globe.
The original Atlas of Economic Complexity
The Globe is built upon The Atlas of Economic Complexity, a powerful interactive tool that enables users to visualize a country’s total trade, track how these dynamics change over time and explore growth opportunities for more than a hundred countries worldwide.
For any given country, The Atlas shows which products are produced and exported; The Atlas can then use this information to suggest products a country could begin manufacturing in order to fuel economic growth.
