Except that graph does not look like it came from The Economist. Faithful readers know that in such a graph the y-axis labels are ALWAYS on the right, not the left.

They drive on the wrong side of the road too.

Lattice users can also access The Economist styled graphs (with y-axis on the right) using the latticeExtra package. http://latticeextra.r-forge.r-project.org There is a ggplot2-like style too!

Awesome! Thanks again for the great article.

Unfortunately, right now ggplot always puts the y-axis labels on the right side, thus the theme is only an approximation. And really loyal Economist readers would know that The Economist plots use ITC Officina Sans as their font, not Helvetica as is used in the example.
