World Bank Map of Development

The World Bank has a Google-maps mashup of projects and status of the world's various economies. The map breaks down countries incomes, has economic and political data, and lists various World Bank projects. Through the use of hyperlinks more information is available on projects.

It is interesting to see how the World Bank has shifted from poverty reduction in second and third world countries to development. It seems the leadership is following the parable "Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime." (Hat tip: Catholicgauzette)
