The State of the Global Village
December 19, 2007
Have you heard of the “State of the Village Report”? If you haven’t, in it professor Donella Meadows examines what the world would be like if everything was distilled down to a village of 1000 people (circa 2000).
If the world were a village of 1000 people:
584 would be Asians
123 would be Africans
95 would be East and West Europeans
84 Latin Americans
55 Soviets (still including for the moment Lithuanians, Latvians, Estonians, etc.)
52 North Americans
6 Australians and New Zealanders
