Book reading - Factfulness

This is my review and notes after reading the book "Factfulness" by dr. Hans Rosling.

https://www.amazon.com/Factfulness-Reasons-World-Things-Better/dp/1250107814/ref=sr_1_1?crid=18W9S39AE1GMJ&keywords=factfulness&qid=1568676676&s=gateway&sprefix=factfulness%2Caps%2C182&sr=8-1

The book is very concise and divided into self contained chapters. The book mainly deals with the realities of economic disparity and the growth seen in countries of the lower economic strata. The author does his best to dispel myths about the (imagined) agony and (mythical) despair that commonly accompany narratives of poor countries and societies. He has shown his passion in every page of the book. Although the book is similar to a TED talk given by the author, the book has additional clarity and perspective to make sure we understand the concepts better.


The book is easy to read.It is highly recommended for equity investors in the developing markets.
The book helps the reader to avoid hyperbole in modern news and information media about developing world. Equity investment is about growth and returns from a growing future. Reading this book will help investors understand how the world is chnging, and how they can position their portfolio towards countries and companies that will grow during this ecenomic growth phase. it will also help investors who are solely invested in developed and mature ecenomies to get awareness and exposure about the opportunities in the developing countries.
