What is this s**t?

Hit & Run links to this. Somehow the people that computed the table got it all wrong. What they compare are the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and the Sales of a company. Now, the GDP is the value of the all the goods and services that is produced during a certain time, most common a year, in a country. But it's not equal to the sales of a company since the GDP only count the value added and not the whole value. So you have to compare the GDP with a company's value added, the result will of course be completely different.
