  1. I think the graph would be easier to interpret correctly if it showed the actual GDPs (using 2007 as 100% and then newer measurements as “year/2007″). The as-drawn graph makes it much too easy to ignore the negative numbers on the lefthand side and look at what is actually a “rate of change” line as a “value” line. So, for example, has the German GDP actually recovered to, or passed, its 2007 level? Completely impossible to determine from the graph. +1% growth after a 10% drop means what exactly? Clearly NOT “1% of the 2007 base”.
