At TEDxSummit last April, Hans Rosling gave this impromptu talk that has become the shortest TED talk ever. Hans Rosling, a rock-statistician who has offered some of the most stunning talks on TED, surprises us again with this less-than-a-minute talk which perfectly explains by using 10 rocks how global population growth will affect wealth distribution in the future and what will happen to the gap between the rich and the poor.

Hans Rosling has offered some of the most viewed TED videos which have been translated into dozens of languages. His animated statistics talks have enable us to understand in a visual way our world from a global perspective and how our actions affect our health and wealth and one another across space and time. The success of his talks has been such that he has been selected among the TIME’s 100 list of influential people.
