The latest edition of the collection is for May and contains data up to the 29th of April.
A couple of graphs caught my attention (sorry they didn't reproduce that well)
This first one shows China and India's amazing performance since 2000, just how badly they were affected by the collapse of world trade in 2009 and then how quickly they recovered.
This second graph shows one of the reasons why Australia has done so well in recent times. Growth in Australia's trading partners has outpaced growth in the OECD as a whole. To get an accurate comparison we would need to do similar graphs for individual countries trading partner GDP, but obviously having extensive trade with Asia has served us well in recent times
This messy third graph shows the collapse of trade over 2008-09. This is particularly true for Japanese trade, which fell more than any other trading partner during this period of time and is the reason why it lost its position as Australai's most important export market to China, which didn't fall by quite so much.
This fourth graph shows Australia's sound fiscal position compared to most countries with only the Scandinavians in a better position among developed countries. Despite fears about Spain and its high deficit, it does not have a particularly bad overall debt position. (The deficit is the yearly figure and debt is the accumulation of deficits over time). This figure is the best one (see my earlier post Public Debt (for Nerds) for an explanation) rather than the generally misleading gross public debt figure that is usually trotted out to scare the uninformed!
