How countries spend money

Yesterday, the infographic shows that China now has more highways than the US which got me thinking about how countries spend their money.

Last year, Economist made a chart that looks at this very question.

It's fascinating that US spends the least on food, considering the percentage of obesity in America, I thought that Americans would be spending more money on food. I guess that food is relatively cheap in America and so that's the reason for the obesity?

Australia really loves recreation and spends the most in that category, more than US, Japan, or the EU. 

Hopefully, the Economist will update the chart and include more countries this time around.
