The Biggest Good News Story You May Not Have Heard Of

Hans Rosling is a Swedish doctor and statistician, and a member of Time’s list of 100 most influential persons of 2012. He has now turned into a public speaker and talks about the changing world. He has developed powerful tools to visualize the numbers that enliven dry data and tell a story. His videos and presentations tell us an incredible good-news story that has not been told before in such a powerful manner. The good news is that most of the world has nearly caught up with the advanced nations in health and is fast catching up on wealth too.
