Myths about the developing world, debunked

With the drama and urgency of a sportscaster, Hans Rosling debunks a few myths about the "developing" world. He creates a new oxymoron: Exciting statistical graphics. Really impressive: some of the best you will see anywhere.

Rosling is professor of international health at Sweden's world-renowned Karolinska Institute, and founder of Gapminder, a non-profit that brings vital global data to life.

(Recorded February 2006 in Monterey, CA. Duration: 20:35 - More TEDTalks.)
