Hans Rosling

Another good guy.

A good teacher can make any subject interesting, and Hans Rosling makes statistics interesting. All very relevant to industrial design and how it can be such a positive force in the world.

He shows a very positive and optimistic view of the world, industrialisation, wealth and health:

Here he is talking about the rise of Asia:

and why the rise of Asia is crucial to reducing poverty and slowing population growth:

and one of my favourite ever TED videos, “The Magic Washing Machine”:

lots more videos and stuff on his website http://www.gapminder.org/
