A Mexican wave of success is sweeping through the world of cinema; at the centre of it three Oscar-winning friends who came of age in Mexico City in the 1980s. In America, where most Mexicans are noticed, if at all, sweeping floors and waiting at tables, such a masterful cleanup in Hollywood is a startling result. The success reflects well on both Mexico and Hollywood, yet the acclaim of Mexican film-makers is not just in America http://econ.st/1Ek6b6C

One cable reveals South Africa’s spy chief was miffed to discover that a foreign spook had his private mobile-phone number. Another describes an Israeli agent in South Africa as “out of his depth”, unable to find his way on local roads. A trove of recently leaked intelligence files illustrates the fact that modern espionage is often a bumbling as well as a murky business http://econ.st/1BSto0U

Conventional wisdom in baseball says to ignore spring training statistics, because the games don't count. But a new study—conducted by our very own sports editor—shows that these practice contests actually do help predictions for the following season, and demonstrates the hubris of researchers who insisted otherwise http://econ.st/1BLbHi0

Thanks to its close trade links with China, and a well-targeted fiscal stimulus, Australia was one of the few developed countries to avoid a recession during the financial crisis. Yet new figures suggest the country might be down on its luck: GDP growth slowed to just 0.5% in the last three months of 2014. The once-booming economy is struggling to adjust to lower commodity prices, and as growth has slowed, political tensions have risen http://econ.st/1M97rKm
THROUGH a combination of good policy and good luck Australia has managed to avoid recession for more than two decades. Thanks to its close trade links with China,...

When he looked in the mirror, he did not see James Bond. To outside observers, however, his world came straight from Ian Fleming. The depths of the sea were the last frontier of the cold war, and his mission, amongst other things, was to devise ways of finding on the deep ocean bed anything the enemy might have dropped or mislaid, including atom bombs. John Piña Craven, mastermind of America’s cold-war submarine spying, died on February 12th, aged 90 http://econ.st/1DU2UJQ

Have you ever indulged yourself for doing something virtous? Perhaps unsurprisingly, shoppers who bring their own shopping bags buy more green products than those who use the store’s bags. But it seems eco-shoppers are also more likely to buy sweets, ice cream and crisps. Psychologists call this sort of behaviour “moral licensing”. While this example may seem harmless, the results can be perverse http://econ.st/1BGLMrY
