Anybody who has ever dealt with investment bankers knows that "league tables" are the all-important standings among the intensely competitive firms that raise money for the businesses of the world. Smaller firms which cannot lay claim to any global ranking slice the data to show local or segment dominance -- "we lead in pre-revenue biotechnology follow-on offerings for companies with sub-billion dollar market capitalization," and such.
But what about the freaking global league tables? See below for a map of the world with the countries sized by "free float equity market capitalization" -- what public companies in those markets are worth, in the aggregate, and be proud.
That shit be real.
