    Feed and educate every child on Earth for only $456 billion? There are almost 2 billion people under fourteen years old. I don’t think the math adds up.

    I’ll second that. This information is beautiful & implies some excellent points, but only generally. Aside from the fact that its more than a year old, there’s no sauce, so the specific data can’t really be interpretted in proper context. Still, damn interesting…
