Angry cards

Philippe Rekacewicz develops his cards on the basis of the statistical informations he collects and mentions at the bottom of each card.
The card above, "Banana Finance", is one of the "Angry Cards" that Le Monde Diplomatique has exhibited in the hall of the Maison des metallos in Paris in October 2012.

720 000 000 000 000 $ - speculative financial derivatives ;
  75 000 000 000 000 $ - household financial assets ;
  62 000 000 000 000 $ - world GDP :
  50 000 000 000 000 $ - market capitalization ;
  15 000 000 000 000 $ - total world trade ;
    6 000 000 000 000 $ - share of household financial assets in tax havens ;
    1 000 000 000 000 $ à 1 500 000 000 000 $ - benefit of criminal activities ;

1) Speculation (hedge derivatives) vs Production (global GDP) in billions of dollars :

2) Per capita income of the richest and poorest countries in the world, in billions of dollars :
