all change

Johan Norberg has some great stats on globalisation, prompted by the news that the number of people in extreme poverty has fallen below a billion for the first time.

Not much to add to his list. Other nice facts: Every day 71,000 people in China log onto the internet for the first time; Edward Luce in his book on India mentions in passing that 60% of the world's buttons now come from one city in China; and if you are over 27, you are in the older half of the world's population.
