My friend Alistair sent me an email recommending this presentation, by a Swedish academic I'd never heard of before, Hans Rosling (here's his blog).

It's a terrifically entertaining and informative talk about the rise of Asia, ending with a bold prediction of the exact date that Asia will overtake the West in economic power. Great use of visual aids, too*. Enjoy.

* I see from Wikipedia that Rosling in fact developed the statistical and graphing tools (Gapminder) that you see used to such great effect in the presentation.
