If you haven’t already, check out his talks on TED.com, all of them are just as fascinating.

I agree, juandos. And then I pressed the "play" button for the video and enjoyed the 4D presentation of economic data.

Really interesting but going from that video to your title is one hell of a non-sequitur.

Really? Do you mean to say that you don't understand what Rosling is showing you?

There is one thing that I noticed that should have us question the accuracy of the data. While the decline in American life expectancy is quite evident for 1918 who don't we see a change during the Civil War? Clearly the software and databases used by Rosling provide a useful look at things they need to be audited for accuracy.

Anyone who wants to play with the data can go to http://www.gapminder.org/ and take a look.
