An interactive heatmap of inflation across the globe, from the WSJ. Well done, but I would have expected some 2010 data in there by now.

Nice looking graph the only problem with inflation data is that the Governments and Central Banks are usually the ones that publish that data. The CPI that tracks US “inflation” is a joke of a statistic and underestimates true inflation in order to keep the official inflation data within the predetermined range. Nobody can seriously believe that inflation was as low as officially stated over the past decades.
