United States vs Great Britain (Revised)

I am revisiting my previous graph United States vs Great Britain: Income and Population since 1500. In my original graph, I placed population on the y-axis which emphasizes its dramatic growth in the US. In the new graph, I placed GDP per Capita on the y-axis which emphasizes the growth in income in both countries. Take a look below at both versions and let me know which you prefer:

Comparing United States vs Great Britain's income and population over the last 500 years shows how the US eventually over took Britain. Keep in mind that GDP per Capita for both countries are in 1990 international Geary-Khamis dollars, calculated from purchasing power parities (PPPs) of currencies and average prices of commodities. {Click on the image to take a closer look}

Last 2,000 years of growth in world income and population (REVISED)

world population and GDP per capita

After posting a graph of world population and GDP per capita for the last 2 thousand years, I went back and simplified the design based on the feedback I received.

The previous version used color to show a change in GDP per capita and included grid lines which I removed. Also in the new graph, I added the United States GDP per Capita for select years as a comparison.
