The rise of Asia

by Helena Stromgren on November 25, 2009

Hans Rosling is a Swedish medical doctor, academic, statistician and public speaker. He is Professor of International Health at the Karolinska Institute. Rosling was a young guest student in India when he first realized that Asia had all the capacities to reclaim its place as the world’s dominant economic force. At TEDIndia in November 2009, he graphs global economic growth since 1858 and predicts the exact date that India and China will overtake United States and become the two greatest powers in the world.
