200 Countries, 200 Years, 4 Minutes

I’m getting excited about the Fifth Law and Mind Sciences Conference: “The Psychology of Inequality” that will be held at Harvard Law School on February 26, 2011.
It promises to be a great event. (As a reminder, you can register for the conference here.)
To whet your appetite, check out this amazing animated graph constructed by Dr. Hans Rosling tracking changes in global health over the last 200 years by country. It’s well worth the four-minute watch!
