The World in Past 200 years

Okay, this is amazing. While I don't think the entire world will ever be "healthy and wealthy" (didn't Jesus say we would always have the poor with us?), it's still eye-opening to consider how the standard of living has changed over 200 years. And 2,000 years. Amazing graphic.

Enjoy your day!

LOVE it, Angie. That is really cool ... making stats understandable through such a clever graphic display. Yes, we will always have the poor among us, but their poverty appears to have risen to less dire levels by the looks of this. I've seen stats of American poor vs. those in other countries and that is amazing, too. Thanks for sharing yet one more fascinating piece of information! Clyde

That was fascinating. I would like to see him separate out the US, like Clyde said and see how our poor compare to other poor.
