The presentation was done with PowerPoint.
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.

You can see the title "Microsoft PowerPoint - Philippon discussion_nakamura2.pptx" if you click on "Properties" of the file in a PDF reader. It was converted to PDF by the Adobe Acrobat Distiller.

I think it's bad design. Just what I see at a first glance:

  • many font versions mixed on a single slide

  • too much text on a slide, too dense

  • a serif font may not be the best readable choice for a presentation

  • bad quality of embedded graphics, such as here:

    It's a bitmap graphic, no vector image, so it looks bad when zoomed. Powerpoint cannot use PDF, LaTeX can.

  • the filled circles and lines don't make much sense, just look playful

  • text doesn't fit in frames:

    Now we see that the playful circles waste precious space, that the frame cannot use.

  • the headings with capitals are hard to read, especially when they are long, such as
    AND OUTPUT GROWTH 2008-2012

  • no ligatures

  • bad (italic) text in math formulas (mixing year and variable y)

  • bad spacing, see:

You can produce much better slides using LaTeX. So, you already made a good choice! :)
