Wow – what statistics could never say before is possible now with the software of Hans Rosling. Have you ever seen the story of development of countries form 1858 till today? This is possible now and very entertaining. See the TED Video

Get an idea about storytelling with statistics and about the world to change.

Hans Rosling was a young guest student in India when he first realized that Asia had all the capacities to reclaim its place as the world’s dominant economic force. At TEDIndia, he graphs global economic growth since 1858 and predicts the exact date that India and China will outstrip the US.
