The Buzz: Hans Rosling on the rise of Asia

Hans Rosling kicked off the first session of TEDIndia speaking about Asia’s past and future life expectancy and per capita income. Using his trademark GapMinder bubble graph, he projects India and China will catch up to the US in 2048 … on July 27th, to be exact. The Twitter and Facebook audiences were impressed:
