Summary note:
What would the world look like if the 7 billion people on this planet were presented as 100 individuals? This beautifully illustrated and informative infographics book re-examines the worlds population with fascinating and often sobering results. Covering diverse subjects such as demography, education, technology and health, The World as 100 People reveals that 61 people are Asian, 15 are African, 10 come from Europe and 14 are from the Americas. 51 people live in cities, yet 36 lack basic access to sanitation. 21 people are overweight, 15 are undernourished and 1 is starving. 40 individuals are regular Internet users and 21 have a Facebook page. Perhaps most shockingly of all, 48 people currently live on less than US$2 per day while 1 person owns 48% of all the worlds wealth. With bold infographics from Melbourne-based designer and artist Aileen Lord, The World as 100 People highlights the reality of the world we live in. It is enlightening and thought provoking, and will ensure that you'll never look at the worlds population in the same way again.
