Our live chart shows that after four difficult years, Greece’s debt woes are easing. The country is slowly getting back to normal, though it isn't there yet http://econ.st/1lgM9OK

Our chart looks at the monetary savings made from abstaining over Lent. Of the most common items that people eschew, like alcohol, cigarettes and fast food, Catholics living in Dublin will have saved the most, around $780 if they resisted all the vices in our index. Wine and beer save believers the most cash in São Paulo, Brazil, the country home to the most Catholics in the world http://econ.st/1l8uwVU

The economic consequences of not bailing out the banks are that the US and the world would still be trying to dig out of a terrible depression.  If the public understood the consequences of not bailing out the banks, they would have voted for bailing out the banks.  The US Government has generated a significant profit on those loans/options besides staving off a depression.  There are few times in the history of the US that any government spending program has generated a profit.

While it is easy to throw rocks at Democracy, which admittedly has is flaws, the alternative is not very pretty.

Ebola is back. As of April 14th the virus had infected 168 people in Guinea, in west Africa, according to the World Health Organisation. At least 108 have died. Airports are taking travellers' temperatures and Senegal's border with Guinea was closed. With a mortality rate of up to 90%, ebola is terrifying. The Economist explains how to contain an outbreak http://econ.st/1l7GOhg

Our chart reveals which countries spend the most on their military. Military spending increased last year in every region except the West. Strikingly, Russia spent more than America relative to the size of its economy for the first time in a decade. With tensions growing in Ukraine, budgets in the West might start to increase too http://econ.st/1qEvfNu
