A Powerful (and Very Funny) Riff on Education

In this wonderfully done TED talk, Hans Rosling, a Professor at a Swedish Medical School, not only shows in a lovely way a compelling picture of the state of the world today. He also shows the way that common sense is powerfully misleading people in the world about what is going on around the world, and he makes a proposal for new ways of grounding development conversations in the world in the future.
