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.

World Commodities Map

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.

When your biggest export is crawfish, you might need to rethink your economic program. Just saying.

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.

Cuba makes it most money from oil export????!!

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.

RE: So, we’re 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.
