It’s better to be Rich & Healthy than to be Sick & Poor
Growing up my father used to always say: ‘It’s better to be Rich & Healthy than to be Sick & Poor’. I have often thought about that statement and about how lucky I was to be born into a wealthy country during a great time in history when people on average became healthier and lived longer. I was recently thinking about this statement over the holiday season when I remembered Hans Rosling’s excellent visualisation of this concept and how countries across the world have grown wealthier and healthier.
