Global Leaders and Communications

Our world’s population exceeds six billion. If the global population was only 1000 people, it would include:

584 Asians 124 Africans 150 Eastern and western Europeans and former Soviets 84 Latin Americans 52 North Americans 6 Australians and New Zealanders

About 50% of the people speak the following languages:

165 Mandarin 86 English 83 Hindu/Urdu 64 Spanish 58 Russian 37 Arabic

The other half speaks Bengali, Portuguese, Indonesian, Japanese, German, French, and 200 other languages. Communication, indeed, would be challenging in this global village.1
