    Complementing the Adam Smith Institute’s site is https://www.gapminder.org/, the brainchild of historian and statistician Hans Rosling (RIP).

    Rosling saw his task in life to fill in the gaps we have regarding how we perceive the current human condition to be.

    A truly remarkable individual. He was a lot more polite and tolerant of ignorance than me. :D

    GAP in capitals for me. I am happy that my answers were wrong in the right correction. The world perhaps is in better shape than i thought.
    Cheers Shiney
