Hans Rosling's Magic Washing Machine. Machines of progress, resource use and the developping world.
What was the greatest invention of the industrial revolution? Hans Rosling makes the case for the washing machine. In under 10 minutes Hans Rosling does us the service of providing a solution to the argument that "the developping world musn't consume like the developped world as there arn't enough resources". In his TED talk at TEDWomen in Dec 2010 he puts to us the case for allowing developping countries access to the machines of progress.
