Olav: I'm astounded at the following claim in the IMF report you forwarded:
"energy subsidies amount to a staggering $1.9 trillion worldwide—the
equivalent of 2½ percent of global GDP, or 8 percent of government
It might be interesting to further explore the aggregated/estimated figures
in the tables in the appendices. 
The IEA also publishes this: http://www.iea.org/subsidy/index.html
But I can't seem to see a way to get the raw data.
Anyone else interested in digging into this?
