Ten instincts cause virtually everyone to misunderstand the world, according to Swedish scholar Hans Rosling.

At this session, Craig Israelsen, Ph.D., draws upon the work of Dr. Rosling as a preface to evaluating a variety of global metrics showing things are better than you might think.

Facts and forecasts of trends in global population, world income distribution, and what you used to call "emerging markets" may surprise you and alter your investment perspective. We’ll cover:

13 questions testing your knowledge of the world
GDP per capital income and its correlation to life expectancy
Shifting global poverty, economic and demographic trends through 2100
