Letting the Argintine bar go outside the chart is great, and hard to do in Office charts(?) From An Intermediate Commercial Geography, Part 1: Commodities and World Trade

What I like here is using the dots to go between the row name and the rest of the columns. It fills that whitespace nicely and, I guess, makes it more readable so don’t lose track of the row as you go right.

I would have wanted to put a grid on all of this, but it looks so much better without one. From An Intermediate Commercial Geography, Part 1: Commodities and World Trade
