  1. Hey Shaun! Nice post on the developments of the two countries. It was very unfortunate that you weren’t able to upload the other pictures because if you did your post would be more informative. If you could maybe choose a MEDC and a LEDC for this post because it is easier to recognize the differences between the countries. Japan and USA both had a similar results. Other that you gave good information and it was a good post.
