    Default Debunking myths about the "Third World", interesting video

    [YOUTUBE]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RUwS1uAdUcI[/YOUTUBE]

    It's quite heavy on the statistics/graphics, though it's all in a fairly simple and understandable way. I found it fascinating because it addresses a lot of preconceptions about the so-called Third World, like its economic development rate, or the tendency to talk about African countries as one homogenous group.

    Anyway, it's worth a look.

    Wow, that was awesome! Very interesting. I'll be forwarding it around a bit.

    Thanks for posting that, it was interesting to see the overlap of countries and their economies.
