hw:
            So here we go, first the access for health,  life expectancy from 25 years to 75 years, and down here, an access for wealth, income per person, 400, 4000 and 40000 dollar. 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 counties, Europe brown, Asia red, Middle East green , Africa south of Sahara  blue, and the American is yellow. The size of the counties bubbles shows the size of the population. And in 1810, it was pretty crowded down there , wasn't it? All countries were sick and poor, life expectancy will be no 40 in all countries. And only UK  and the Netherlands were likely better off, but not much.
   
   And now we start the world.  Industrial revolution makes  countries  in Europe  and elsewhere move away from the rest. But the colonized countries in Asia and Africa, they are stack 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 flue  epidemic. what a catastrophe.

  And now I speed up to 1920s and 1930s, and it fights off the great  depression , western countries * the wealth and health, Japan and some others strived  to follow. But  most countries stayed on here down of the * of the second World War. We still go on to look the world in 1948.

    1948 was a great year. The war was over, Sweden took the medal tape at Wintern Olympics  and I was born.  But the difference between the countries over the world was  wider than ever. United States was in the front ,  Japan  was catching up, Brazil was way behind, Iran was getting a little richer from oil, but still had short lives. The Asian giants, China, India, Pakistain, * , Indonesia, they were poor and sick down here, but look what is about to happen.
