So here we go, first axis for health, life expectancy, from 25 years to 75 years. And down here, an axis for wealth, income per person. Four hundred, four thousand, and forty thousand dollars. So down here is poor and sick, and up here is rich and healthy.
Now, I’m going to show you the world 200 years ago, in 1810. here come over countries. Europe brown, Asia red, Middel-East green, Africa in south of Sahara are blue, and the America is yellow. And the size of country bubble shows the size of population. And in 1810, it’s pretty crowd down there, wasn’t it? All countries were sick and poor, life expectancy will be low forty in all countries, and only the UK and the Netherland was slightly better off, but not much.
And now, why start the world, industrial revolution makes conference in Europe and elsewhere move away from the west. But the colonized countries in Asia and Africa, they are stunk down there, and eventually, the western countries get healthier and healthier.
And now, we slow down to show the impact of the first World War, and the Spanish flu epidemic. What a catastrophe.
And now I speed up through the 1910 and the 1930s, and in spite of the Great Depression western countries full *** great wealth and health, Japan and some other countries stride follow, but most countries stay down here.
Now, after the tragedy of second World War, we stop a better to look at the world in 1948. 1948 was a great year, the war was over, Sweden top the medal table at the winter Olympic and I was born. But the differences between the countries over the world was wider than ever. United State was in the front, Japan was catching up, Brazil was way behind, Iran was getting a little rich from oil, but still at short life. and the Asian Giant, China, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Indonesia, they were still poor and sick down here. But look what it is about to happen.
