Factfulness (the book) - 0 views

  •  
    "When asked simple questions about global trends―what percentage of the world's population live in poverty; why the world's population is increasing; how many girls finish school―we systematically get the answers wrong. So wrong that a chimpanzee choosing answers at random will consistently outguess teachers, journalists, Nobel laureates, and investment bankers."

Why I want to stop talking about the "developing" world | Bill Gates - 0 views

  •  
    "I talk about the developed and developing world all the time, but I shouldn't. My late friend Hans Rosling called the labels "outdated" and "meaningless." Any categorization that lumps together China and the Democratic Republic of Congo is too broad to be useful. But I've continued to use "developed" and "developing" in public (and on this blog) because there wasn't a more accurate, easily understandable alternative-until now."
