    Does anyone have a link to a series of lectures that was once posted here; done by a Scandanavian professor (IIRC) showing the progress of the world's countries with these gnarly bubbles that were constantly flying around the screen demonstrating the performance of countries in various metrics?

    Sorry to be so vague but I'm hoping someone will know what I'm talking about and be able to post the info.

    Thanks.
