Hans Rosling: Beautiful Statistics about Communities, Health and Money

Hans Rosling speaks elegantly about the health of communities (countries) and how it has changed over the last century - with some predictions into the future.  He gives us a 'grandmother' view of statistics in a most interesting presentaiton and finishes by demonstrating that the seemingly impossible is possible.

Hans demonstrates over and over that the richest people are not the healthiest people.

You can see an earlier presentation, somewhat of a foundation for this one, here:
where he demonstrates that the problem with his students is not ignorance - it is pre-concieved ideas about 'we' and 'them'. The graphic presentation of statistics is the best I have ever seen.
