A fascinating look at the health and wealth of the world 200 countries,200years,4 minutes

As the title of this video states, it shows Hans Rosling’s brilliant interpretation of 120,000 statistics spanning 200 countries over 200 years. The incredible part of it all is that he illustrates it in a very interesting, simple way, and in only 4 minutes and 48 seconds. In this augmented reality presentation called “The Joy of Stats,” he uses life expectancy vs. income on this graph, and then plots the countries from year 1810 until now.

By showing us the “big picture” in this way, and detailing the amazing progress the world has made, he creates optimism and a smile about the future, which is refreshing. He says, “I see a clear trend into the future with aid, trade, green technology and peace. It’s fully possible that everyone can make it into the healthy/wealthy corner.” He backs this up with his presentation of stats. Get ready to be schooled by one of the best teachers ever. Wow, I’m so impressed!
