I was shouted this on Digg today, and it’s a fascinating look at how the world has changed since 1809 in terms of life expectancy and wealth. Presented by Hans Rosling, the original is at Gapminder.

Hans does what few others manage, presenting Economics that anyone can understand.
Wouldn't it be good to see a similar analysis of corporate evolution.
For more in the same vein, have a look at his TED presentation - one of the best presentations I’ve ever seen: http://jimdonovan.net.nz/2007/08/29/hans-rosling-one-of-the-best-presentations-ive-ever-seen/Post a Comment

With Blogger ceasing to support FTP publishing on May 1, I have decided to turn these older pages in to an archive, so you will no longer be able to enter comments. However, you can comment on entries posted after January 1, 2010.
