Great vid although misleading since GDP growth is measured in percentage relative to the current economic size.

Also lots of these are experiencing rapid capital recovery as people return to work and markets after long civil wars etc, so appear to be ‘growing’ but are simply recovering. Libya at the end is a good example.
