The Economist 2

Opinion 1 here.

The Economist is like that one friend you have who always tells you instructive things about countries and technologies you didn't even know existed and whom you value for his smarts and quiet humour. But despite his intelligence and perspicacity, sometimes he holds opinions - and sticks to them despite all evidence to the contrary which he must, must be aware of - that you can only describe as incongruous, bizarre, completely bananas. You let it slide because you really value the friendship, but sometimes you wonder whether there isn't something fundamentally wrong with your friend, and perhaps you should try to check his facts a bit more the next time he tells you something about Botswana or the coming revolution in 3-D printing.
