When asked simple questions about global trends- what percentage of the world's population lives in poverty; why the world population is increasing; how many girls finish school- we systematically get the answers wrong" (Rosling). As an economist, I found this book to be quite refreshing and optimistic about our present and the future. The author employs some elements of behavioral economics to explain human bias towards negative thinking. Rosling provides some rules of thumb to retrain our brains to think differently and challenge the unconscious bias that leads to poor decision making. He goes as far as to say that the most educated people are the ones who hold the most incorrect assumptions about the world. Definitely a must read for managers and executives making decisions on behalf of large corporations as wrong perceptions can lead to a loss in market opportunities.
