Fascinating statistics on how we are living longer and getting richer . . .
Some times we get so caught up in the bad news of the day about healthcare crisis, financial crisis in countries around the world, etc. that we lose the perspective of the big picture. In this incredible compilation of more than 200 years of statistics on income and life expectancy in over 200 countries, Hans Rosling shows how life expectancy and household income have dramatically increased. In this dynamic presentation of statistics starting in 1810 and running through 2009, major world events like world wars and plagues and epidemics in countries and regions of the world can also be observed.
The bottom line . . . We are living longer and increasing in wealth as a world population.
Simple: Just watch the video and enjoy.
