The 100% stacked bar shows the proportion of millionaires in each region in 2005, 2015, and 2025.  The linking lines allow you to see more clearly how the proportions are changing.  I added the percentages as data labels to each segment and added a legend to identify each region.  I also added two CAGR columns to highlight both actual and projected growth.  I used the align legend to CAGR feature in Mekko Graphics to line up the numbers.  Here is the chart in SlideShare to download and edit using Mekko Graphics:
