Greece Holds ‘World Record’ in Olive Oil Production

map Greece
DogHouseDiaries website has created a map that shows in which product or activity each country, worldwide, has a comparative advantage, based on figures of commercial, political and social activity.  Greece holds the ‘world record’ in “olive oil production.”

Although in some cases the results seem weird, the map creators claim that they have based their findings solely on official figures.

According to the creators, the United Kingdom has a ‘world record’ in “fascist movements,” while Russia holds the ‘world record’ in “Raspberries and nuclear warheads” and India in “Movies.”

Greece holds the ‘world record’ in “olive oil production.” This is no surprise to anyone following the recent boost in olive oil production and exports that has been officially recorded in the past few years.

    Greece should correctly be identified as “The Birthplace of Restaurateurs”. Turkey “Where men are men and sheep are nervous”.

  • True, if it weren’t for Spain and Italy.

    Olive oil consumption is quite different than olive oil production. Also, the map is supposed to be making fun of the facts, not taken seriously and be reported on.
