Hans Rosling’s thought provoking analysis of economic development

Back in May, I was fortunate enought to attend the Microsoft CEO Summit, a world-class gathering of corporate leaders from all over the world.  One of the presentations that made a big splash was by Hans Rosling, a Swedish academic who studies issues of health and population.  Hans Rosling's fascinating presentation is now available for anyone to see in video form (click on the link to open the video).

What I find particularly fascinating about his work is how much, in the past 200 years, business has contributed to making people healthier and wealthier.
