Arms Sales: U.S. vs Russia 1950-Present

Mike Mish Shedlock

Excellent video presentation by Will Geary, @wgeary, on US and Russia arms sales to the rest of the world.


The fascinating video with sound is on Vimeo.

The underlying data comes from the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute's Arms Transfers Database. Units are expressed in trend indicator values (TIV). Each dot on the map = one TIV. Visualization by Will Geary (@wgeary).

Well Done, Will!
