So, here we go.
First is an axis for health, life expectancy, from 25 years to 75 yeas.
And down here an axis for wealth, income per person, 400, 4000, and 40,000 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 countries, Europe brown, Asia red, X green, Africa South Americans are blue and The American is yellow.
And the size of the country bubble show the size of the population.
And in 1810, it was pretty crowded down there, wasn't it?
All of the countries were sick and poor.
Life expectancies were below 40 in all the countries.
And only UK and the Netherlands were slightly better off, but not much.
And now, I start the world.
Industrial revolution makes countries in Europe and elsewhere move away from the rest.
But the colonize countries in Asia and Africa, they are stuck 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 spanish X.
What a X.
And now I speed up through the 1910s and 1030s.
And inspite the great depressure western countries four drown to greaty wealth and health.
Japan and some other strike to follow, but most countries stay down here.
But, after the tragedy of the second world war.
We stop a bit to look at the raw in 1948.
1948 was a great year.
The war was over, Sweden top the medal tablet of the Winter Olimpics.
And I was born.
But the differences between the countries of the world was wider than ever.
US was in the front, Japan was catching up, Brazil was way behind, Iran was getting a niton richer from oil, but still had a short lives.
And the Asian giants, China, India, Pakistan, B and Indonisia, they were still poor and sick down here.
But low quantity is about to happen...
