Do the math

A friend asked me to put this little Flash movie on the site. I think it pretty much speaks for itself, provided you have Flash support.
One comment, though: although the facts presented here broaden most people's horizons, they ultimately depress more than anything else. Bluntly put, I'm missing the punchline. Viewing such blatant inequalities in the world must prompt people to political action. The reason the world is the way it's shown in the movie is because there is no incentive for politicians or corporations to improve it. Therefore, we should support politicians and activists who address these issues, and question those who don't.
