    March 03, 2016

    The emergence of large middle classes in developing countries is not only good for economies, but also for governance.

    Connectivity Atlas

    Infrastructure connects us and defines us. The roads, pipelines and Internet cables that deliver our services also shape our opportunities, our vulnerabilities, and our identities. Political and geographic maps abound - yet there are few useful, elegant maps of the complex infrastructure that ties us. The Connectivity Atlas invites you to explore the shapes and lines that advance our global connectedness. We believe that great insight lies in these maps. Click here to see the Connectivity Atlas
