[Homework]【整理】2011-01-02&01-08 四分钟了解200个国家过去200年的发展 (1/2)

So, here we go. First an axis for health, life expectancy, from 25 years to 75 years.And down here, an axis for wealth, income per person, 4 hundread, 4 thousand, and 40 thousand dollars. So down here, it's poor and sick. and up here, it's rich and healthy.Now, I am going to show you the world 200 years ago, in 1810.Here come over countries, euroup brown, asia red, mideast green, africa south of sahala blue and the american's yellow.And the size of the country bubbles show the size of the population. And in 1810, it was pretty crowded down there wan't it. All the countries were sick and poor, life expecancy were below 40 in all the countries, and only the UK and the Netherland were slightly better off, but not much.And now I start the world. Industrial revalution makes countries in europe and elsewhere move away from the rest. But the colonized countries in Asia and Africa they are stuck down there. And eventually the westen countries get healthier and healthier.And now, we slow down to show the impact of the 1st world war, and the spanish flu epidemic. what a catastrophe! and now I speed up through the 1920s and the 1930s, and inspite of the great depression, westen countries forge on towards greater wealth and health.Japan and some others try to follow, but most countries stay down here.Now after the tragedies of the 2nd world war, we stop a bit to look at the world in 1948. 1948 was a great year, the war was over. Sweden took the medal tablet at the winter olimpic and I was born.But the differences between the countries of 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 has short lives . and the asian giants, china, india, pakinstan, bangladish, indonisia,they were still poor and sick down there. But look what it is about to happen.
