Hans Rosling – Global Population Growth And The Good News Of The Decade

PLAYBOOTH is running a three-part special on the late Hans Rosling, the statistician who brought dry numbers to life, continuing with two more presentations: a tale of the demographics underwriting the global economy, explained with simple props and some catchy phrases; and a surprisingly uplifting presentation of child mortalities.

Child survival, Rosling says, is the new green, and he shows it, box by box.

Spoken like a ‘very serious possibilist.’

And this, the good news of the decade . . .
