Account Balances of the World

Written by Carly Hallman

When you think of an account balance, you might immediately think of your own personal bank account. On a national and international level, the concept of an account balance is quite the same. This infographic, based on data from the CIA World Factbook, presents an alarming heatmap of 195 nations. There are those in the green, with bank accounts overflowing with funds, and those who are so far in the red that it doesn’t seem like they’ll ever make it back above water. We invite you to explore the data on this inside look of the current account balances of the world.
