Explain the world with maps

After Gapminder (back in 2006), I've just found UUworld, a free tool for Mac (Pro costs $49):

UUorld (pronounced "world") provides an immersive mapping environment, high-quality data, and critical analysis tools. Great explanations are unfortunately scarce, but UUorld makes them easier to achieve through interactive four-dimensional maps

Very interesting for social, geographic and demographic studies.

Karl Marx dixit

In Das Kapital Karl Marx writes:"Owners of capital will stimulate the working class to buy more and more of expensive goods, houses and technology, pushing them to take more and more expensive credits, until their debt becomes unbearable. The unpaid debt will lead to bankruptcy of banks, which will have to be nationalized, and the State will have to take the road which will eventually lead to communism."

This was written in 1867. I'm not a communist (on the contrary) but this sentence makes me think.
