Hans Rosling: Stats that reshape your world-view
With the drama and urgency of a sportscaster, statistics guru Hans
Rosling uses an amazing new presentation tool, Gapminder, to present
data that debunks several myths about world development. Rosling is
professor of international health at Sweden's Karolinska Institute, and
founder of Gapminder, a nonprofit that brings vital global data to life.
(Recorded February 2006 in Monterey, CA.)
