GLOBAL VILLAGE 100
What if we could shrink the earth’s population, as a thought experiment, to a village of precisely 100 people with all the existing human ratios remaining the same?
What would that little global village look like?
This micro-village would look something the following. There would be:
52 would be female
48 would be male
70 would be non-white
30 would be white
70 would be non-Christian
30 would be Christian
89 would be heterosexual
11 would be homosexual
89 would be right-handed
11 would be left-handed
6 would possess 59% of the world’s wealth and all 6 would be Americans
80 would live in sub-standard housing
70 would be unable to read or write
50 would suffer from malnutrition
1 would be near death
1 would be near birth
1 (yes, only 1) would have a college education, and
1 would own a computer.

When you think about the world from this compressed perspective what, in your opinion, is the most interesting thing for you to consider?
