Nothing to do with investing but something interesting on demographics, something I follow with a keen interest.
According to the current world birth-rate the United Nations has estimated that the 7th billion person on the planet will be born at the end of October 2011.
That is 7 000 000 000 people….
Allianz, the German insurer, has put together an interesting interactive website that has interesting information about world demographics and the country there the 7 billionth person may live.
Here’s the link to the interactive website:
We will soon be seven billion
