About: The best stats you've ever seen | Hans Rosling
Thank you sir for your book. RIP
oh Hans, wish you could guide us in this Corona Virus epidemic 😿
Completely and utterly stupid.
People don't care how rich or poor Africa or China is. People care about how much money they have in the bank. Only a few fools mind about the rest of the world when they have problems of their won.
Hans Rosling is just a self proclaimed genius. What he has to say won't make you richer by even one dollar!!!
i’m so obsessed with his presentation style
TED - please make these videos accessible by captioning them. The auto-generated captions are inadequate when a speaker is not a native English speaker.
He will be missed:(
It looked like agario from the thumbnail
So powerful and interesting presentation
A free market is the greatest force to lift people out of poverty
👍🏼 👍🏼 👍🏼 👍🏼
It's really interesting to see the video 12 years ago. Though the speaker was died 2 years ago(RIP), his presentation, the inside thought and his analysis are still inspire us.
What software is this and what is the latest version... I love stats and a software that has these effects are tremendous.....
Awesome. Great statistician
Hi Late Hans, I think your message really worked. NGOs and non-profits are using data in 2019 are more effective than ever. That being said poverty still exists in the world, particularly in South Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa. I think it's because no matter how much pure aid is provided it's a drop in the pond compared to the amount of wealth that needs to be created in South Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa for them to be developed.
In discussions about poverty we often hear talk about foreign aid, changing governmental and institutional practices, relying on data, and community engagement of global citizens.
I think these are all important, but I think they don't give us a true mechanism of how to end poverty. Rampant corruption, uninformed institutions, and poor local leadership for instance are side effects of poverty.
- aid relies on rich people and rich countries and there simply isn't the required political will to transfer the several trillion per year needed to bring all people out of poverty
- changing corrupt local governments, particularly in South Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa is not possible without them being richer
- nor is it easy to cause social change
As countries get richer, they automatically tend to sort out their corruption issues and governmental inefficiencies.
What I think is much easier is to couple educational conditional cash transfer with industry demand for skilled talent in a sustainable, profitable, and scalable for-profit business model.
But, in summary
1. Pay a few majority world people to learn and master a skill (i.e. software development or design).
2. Find a company or person in a developed country who has a need for a person with that particular skill and is open to hiring a remote worker.
3. Make the match and take either a finder’s fee or a cut on the hourly rate. Use these earnings to pay for education of more majority worlders.
4. Majority worlders making $10–20K per year bring a huge amount of money into their communities. The wealth spreads to their day laborers, restaurants, shops, service providers, educational institutions, etc.
This is my vision of “Learning Dollars” - to pay people to learn and then profitably connect them with global talent or production demand.
I have written about this in detail in a blog post: https://blog.learningdollars.com/2019/11/17/how-to-end-world-poverty-and-racial-power-imbalance-in-1-generation/
