This map shows the distribution of gross national savings: that is the difference between Gross National Income and (public and private) expenditure. Education is counted as an expense and environmental degradation is not counted here.
The largest national savings are in the United States, Japan, China and Germany. These are the largest territories on the map. As a proportion of the United States’ savings: India’s were one tenth; Taiwan’s were one hundredth; Azerbaijan’s were one thousandth; Benin’s savings were one ten thousandth; and Sierra Leone’s were one hundred thousandth.
