I have such a huge crush on that guy. If you haven't seen them, he's got several talks on TED. He's a brilliant man and an incredible speaker.

Unbelievable!

I loved the whole thing - but did you see the big downward bounce China took during the Cultural Revolution? It's amazing how some of the "big events" have visual impact in that charting.

Yeah, wish he had mentioned the Great Leap Forward / Cultural revolution.
