Hans Rosling's 200 Countries, 200 Years, 4 Minutes

This video hits many of my favorite subjects: math, history, and pretty graphs. In a fun, approachable manner, taking only four minutes, Hans Rosling describes what has happened to 200 countries over the course of 200 years using 120,000 numbers, and it all makes perfect sense. It's great!

Thank you Chad Orzel for the link.
