Thanks to the work of many inpsired and dedicated researchers, we now know the answers to this.
The late, great Hans Rosling gave the world basic facts to help us understand the world so as to make better decisions. Check out Gapminder, the web site he created, that presents illuminating facts about the world.
Max Roser and OurWorldInData.org continue with Hans Rosling’s work. Roser provides easy to read graphs that show how human health, wealth and other measures are changing over time.
Steven Pinker celebrates human progress of the past 200 years with his new book “Enlightenment Now.”
