TED on Sunday: Hans Rosling on the Dimensions of Development

March 15, 2009

In this wildly compelling talk, Swedish researcher (and data visualization wiz) Hans Rosling argues that there many dimensions of development, that developing countries in sub-Saharan Africa have actually made dramatic progress over the last fifty years, and that the "seemingly impossible is possible." And then he does something truly amazing. Don't cut out before the end. (Filmed: March 2007, Monterey, California. Running time: 18:57.)

Quote of the Week

  • " [A] city must have a soul — a university, a great art or music school, a cathedral or a great mosque or temple, a great laboratory or scientific center, as well as the libraries and museums and galleries that bring past and present together. A city must be a place where groups of women and men are seeking and developing the highest things they know...."

    — Margaret Mead (1901-1978)
