Today, via the MarketTicker blog, I saw the IMF revised SDR (Special Drawing Rights) allocation data. This tells us ultimately how much say in world events each participating country wields. Where is your country on this list?
Download the Excel file if you want to compare the old and new data. (First sheet in the book contains a copy of the data from the IMF release itself, which is augmented with some computed %age columns, and the second and third sheets are added by yours truly to sort and show previous/current world ranking based on that data in sheet 1.)
