Visualizing empires decline

I don’t have much to say about this, but I really enjoyed this visual presentation of the European empires.  I’m not sure how the creator of the video is determining the size of each bubble (GDP?) but I think it’s at least a neat idea for a way to visualize the relative strength of each respective country.  Data visualization is important and this to me does a good job of presenting data in a way that’s easy to observe.
