“(Factfulness is) one of the most important books I’ve ever read―an indispensable guide to thinking clearly about the world.” – Bill Gates
Gapminder’s mission statement is to fight devastating ignorance with a fact-based world view everyone can understand. When asked simple questions about global trends―what percentage of the world’s population live in poverty; how many girls finish school―we systematically get the answers wrong. So wrong that a chimpanzee choosing answers at random will consistently outguess teachers, journalists, Nobel laureates, and investment bankers.
In the global bestseller Factfulness, Anna Rosling along with her husband Ola, and Ola’s father Hans Rosling, reveal ten instincts that distort our perspective―from our tendency to divide the world into two camps (usually some version of us and them) to the way we consume media (where fear rules) to how we perceive progress (believing that most things are getting worse).
It turns out that the world, for all its imperfections, is in a much better state than we might think, a positive message which Anna Rosling will bring to Odense to kickstart this year’s Thinkers50 European Business Forum.
