Ok, fine. This fascinating infographic shows which presidential candidates are powered by Sugar Daddies, and which one by the people.
Jeb's got a fairly even trend, Hillary's over-indexed in the percentage raised in small donations (if you consider between 200 and 2700 small).
The absolute king is Bernie Sanders. Goodness. Look at that. A true man of the people (too bad he does not stand a chance in our elections system).
The most interesting part was how many candidates were riding on Sugar Daddies. Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio and Scott Walker are notable. There is just one person who is bankrolling, in a big way, both Ted and Marco.
In a world where corporations are people and unlimited contributions have absolutely NO corrupting influence on politician's discussions, #ha ! #thanksalotsupremecourt , I suppose this is ok.
I do hope it sill pushes all of us citizens of this great nation to think again what we are creating.

You can quickly see world powers, and rest of the world (8%!).
It is not surprising that the US is mostly Services, it is a bit surprising (to me) that China is that big in that same bucket.
Think of the influence that some tiny countries hold: Norway, Switzerland, Sweden, Belgium etc.
How extraordinary is it that India is not that much bigger than Spain (!!)? Or, for that matter, contrasting Russia and the UK or even France!
One macro observation from this Voronoi diagram is that humanity used to pay for stuff - food, things -, and now we pay for "services." I'm sure there are implications of that, what do you think they are?
As an example, I worry that a lot of money being made on Wall Street is money being produced out of thin air (from the mere act of trading or access to faster information - high-frequency trading). No value is being added to humanity, but a few are making lots out of thin air (rather than, I suppose, planting rice :)).
