Two charts, same planet, not quite the same message.

I present two charts for your consideration:

The first chart is taken from Bill Gate’s Annual 2014 Newsletter where it caught my eye: Bill Gates and his “Three myths that block progress for the poor” http://annualletter.gatesfoundation.org/?cid=bg_tw_po0_012212/#section=myth-one

The chart (click on it to enlarge if necessary)  is interesting and thought provoking  but seems to have something missing.

Here is a similar chart, also interesting and thought provoking, particularly as it includes a little more information than Bill Gates’ chart.  (Credit : Chart by @jamestplunkett and it’s based on a chart from inequality economist Branko Milanovic via  http://www.businessinsider.com/chart-of-recent-global-economic-activity-2014-1)
