The Essential Role of Perspective
The reports sound pretty awful - more than 800 dead in floods that are sweeping India, Nepal and Bangladesh. But how to make any sense out of that?
I went to check out the live birth rate in just India. It's reported to be 32 a minute or just over 46,000 every day. That's 46,000 versus a death rate per day of about 14,400 for a net gain, per diem, of over 31,000. That's just for India. (Canada records 1,075 births and 570 deaths per day).
