The power of a good presentation

It is always hard to let people understand distributions in a quantitative way. Often also science-trained people are not good at grasping the nuances of distributions.

This video does the perfect job. It guides you through data and distributions, and calmly prepares you for a shock. Numbers can be used to tell a story.

What also I like a lot is that they provide the data sources, for anybody to check, and that they use a very quiet tone.

No matter whether you agree or not with the underlying thesis, you should appreciate the power of this presentation.

p.s. The only thing that seems a bit sloppy to me is when at some point they swiftly switch subject by talking first of wealth distribution and then of income distribution. The two things are of course really different but this often can induce confusion in viewers (newspapers are also terrible about this).
