Sometimes – it is good for the mind and soul to take some time off, take a step back and just think about the world in broad strokes – without too much political takes or ideological traps. I hope you enjoy this little 20 minute talk from Prof. Hans Rosling as much as I did last year…
Its neat to see these key developmental stats between many “developing” countries are actually on par with the rich countries.
I think it was Deng who said, “seek truth from facts” (back in a speech in 1978).
It appears all societies can use more of this mantra. And Prof. Hans Rosling seems to call for that too to address the problems that still persist for the bottom 1 billion people on this planet.
