Chart of the day is.....

...this one, from this good summary post of the recent CEPAL/ECLAC report on inequality in Latin America:
Guess which country has the lowest Gini coefficient in all LatAm in 2008, signifying the least inequality in the region? Answer, Venezuela. Guess which country most improved its inequality position in the period 2002 to 2008? Yep, Venezuela. This is why you haven't heard a word about this important CEPAL report in your EngLang media. I mean, you can't possibly go around saying nice things about Chávezlandia, can you?

The full post over at Structurally Maladjusted goes into more detail and is well worth your time. Good job, GJ.
