Shifting global economic center of gravity

The Economist points to a fascinating graphic from a new study by the McKinsey Global Institute that highlights the rapidly shifting global economic center of gravity. The graphic maps the movements in  this centre of gravity since AD 1 and how it is likely to move until 2025. It claims that the center is rapidly shifting east - at a speed of 140 kilometres a year and thus faster than ever before in human history.
