Changing World

Hans Rosling

Hans Rosling, a Swedish researcher, is also an entertaining presenter….especially when the presentation involves statistics.

“Rosling co-founded the Gapminder Foundation together with his son Ola Rosling and daughter-in-law Anna Rosling Rönnlund. Gapminder developed the Trendalyzer software that converts international statistics into moving, interactive and enjoyable graphics.”

This ‘You Tube” link is a noteworthy explanation of the change taking place in world economies and standards of living.

Why is it important?

Because other parts of the world are gaining in buying power which in turn impacts on every business/organization….no matter where they are located. We need to know what’s evolving in a global world.
