Hans Rosling's Yardstick of Wealth - Don't Panic - The Truth About Population
Hans Rosling is famous for presenting public data about the world with the style and timing of a stand-up comedian and the most elegant and innovative infographic technology, all to tell a gripping story of the world's past, present and future development.
