Using data from the CIA Factbook, we labeled every country in the world by its highest valued export, a.k.a. the commodity that makes the country the most money in the global market. Click on any of the maps below to see an enlarged version.
Unsurprisingly, much of the world runs on oil, particularly the Middle East and Central Asia. Europe is the world's workshop, where most of the machinery and motor vehicles are made, from optical instruments to BMWs. Latin America brings a blend of food products and oil to the trading table. Asia is the world's manufacturing center, where the world's clothing, wood products, and semiconductors are made. Africa is extremely rich in natural resources, particularly precious metals and oil. A substantial part of the continent makes its money on diamonds, gold or oil.
What about Pitcairn Island?
Mexico`s should be illegal aliens.
I wonder what “Engineering Products” (Italy) means...?
And the middle east exports terrorism
When your biggest export is crawfish, you might need to rethink your economic program. Just saying.
Afghanistan - Opium.
Why are we there, again?
They are being edged out by mUslim terrorists.
Probably bicycles and accessories.;-)
Because that’s where Bin Laden is hiding?
I suspect their economic program is importing tourists.
Italy has some large firms that do engineering on construction projects and things of that nature. I figure that is what they mean.
They seem to not be counting pot and cocaine.
I didn't even know they had any?..
Is this the offshore oil in the gulf that the green idiots in Florida will not allow anyone to go offshore for?..
So go a little south and drill for the same oil in Cuban waters?
Yea, but how much money do they send home? The illegals account for staggering amounts of funding to Mexico`s economy.
Not oil, but refined products.
The only produce 50 thousand bpd and consume 171 thousand bpd.
But they import more oil than they use and export the refined surplus.
I have a La San Marco 85M that invaded my bar and turned my bar into a coffee bar.
Soft drink concentrates? What?
Mexico exports dependents.
Just about their only export is honey these days.
So, we’re screwed, right?
Fiats? The first 2 are...good, the last...'Fix It Again, Tony'
RE: So, were screwed, right?
Actually NO, we’re more diversified than other countries, and if our government won’t become a barrier to ENERGY production, we’d also be a major energy exporter.
