Here's part two, when Hans Rosling followed-up his 2006 presentation with updated software in 2007. It looks like he's been able to get more data from the UN also.

This one shows the accelerating takeover of the world by Starbucks and how quickly they are catching up to the reigning king of the hill, McDonalds. It's a few years old (2003) so let's see how they've done since then...
Starbucks: 6,200 locations in 2003. 11,225 in 2007. Almost double!!!
McDonalds: "Over 31,000" in 2003. Still 31,000 in 2007. No growth for McDonalds!
Do you want coffee with that?
