“July 27, 2048!”

Having been a History/Social Studies major in college, I am always fascinated by an interesting look at our world and its patterns. Hans Rosling gives a unique glimpse into world economic and health patterns in this presentation given at a TED conference.

If you’ve ever wondered when China and India will finally overtake the Western world, your answer is as near as this video. Also of note is Rosling’s presentation style and use of movement to bring his charts life. Enjoy!
