Gapminder.org is a website that presents statistics on global economic development in a way that is entertaining and interesting. Their first challenge was to tap into those statistics, which are typically held by organizations such as the United Nations but are not generally presented in a way that captures the imagination. They then developed the Trendalyzer software, which presents that data in time lapse fashion and graphically illustrates key changes over time. Watch some of their videos and you may well come across some recent trends in global development that will surprise you.

    I’m amazed, I must say. Rarely do I come across
    a blog that’s equally educative and engaging, and let me tell you, you have
    hit the nail on the head. The issue is something which too few men and women are speaking intelligently about.
    I’m very happy I found this in my hunt for something regarding this.
