Scientific Impact of Nations

This figure is from a BBC news story on the new European comission framework 7 research programme. It shows how the wealth intensity of various nations compares to its scientific impact (as measured by citations). There are a couple of nations I was surprised by (through my ignorance more than anything else): the overwhelming advantage that Switzerland has, and the relative modesty of the US's citation intensity for starters.
