I don't know if you've come across these maps yet, but I think they might help us see the world better. They are from The Atlas Of The Real World (although I found these on the Telegraph website), in which all sorts of different things are portrayed, but here's three that took my fancy.

i.  Wealth [ie. GDP, adjusted for local purchasing power] in 1AD

Wealth in 1AD 

ii. Wealth in 1900AD

Wealth in 1900AD  

iii. Wealth in 2015
