Comparative perspectives on trans-pacific trade, integration and development is a 2009 report, published by the Inter-American Development Bank.

The purpose of this report is to:

  • Examine the state of trade and investment flows and integration between the Latin America and Caribbean (LAC) region and the Asia-Pacific region
  • Explore some of the results of a recent spree on intra-regional regional integration in the LAC region
  • Propose a future bi-regional agenda for LAC and Asia-Pacific to further trans-Pacific scale economies

GeoFred is a map app that allows you to create, customize and share geographical map data found at the Federal Reserve.

For fun, I created the above map using population data from 2010, for all countries available. You can then download your map as a GIF, a PDF, or a JPEG (you can also add your data to a spreadsheet).

Map tools include: choosing your colour scheme, edit legend, edit labels.
