Greece and Puerto Rico...Some Numbers

The major economic news of the day is obviously Greece and their debt troubles.  We're also starting to hear more about a looming default in Puerto Rico. 

The Unrepentant Capitalist thought some numbers might be useful for context.

The population, area, and GDP figures are from our friends at the CIA.  In addition to their fine spy work, the CIA puts out the 'CIA Factbook' which is a web site chocked full of country-by-country data.  Need to know Armenia's hydroelectric output as a percentage of its total electrical generating capacity?  Well it's 33.5% of course. 

The debt figures are from today's (July 3) Barron's.
