Human Development Report 2013: The Rise of the South
This is an interesting animation from the United Nations showing global development trends. The animation pretty much speaks for itself, the bottom line being that the developing nations Brazil, China and India are growing fast and will soon produce more than the established industrial powers in Western Europe and North America. However, there are many dangers to this development and these countries have their own issues to surmount to continue their rapid growth.
Animations like this are useful tools for educating about current geopolitical issues and disseminating very dry information that most people would not see otherwise. Animation is just not about entertaining.
