Best in Economics this week: April 12

We are done with risk! Or at least, if we are to believe this chart from the IMF’s stability report


A pretty simple chart showing how the roles have changed between Emerging and Developed countries


Cool chart showing the various stages of recovery in the US labour market: temporary labour rules the waves!


And talking about the US labour market: the employment rate has not revovered, although the unemployment rate has dropped…


…which gets explained in this article: ‘disability’ is on the rise…

Cool chart showing the longer term trend in cash-use of US companies…


Much ado about the new Wealth study by the ECB, claiming that Germans were a lot poorer than Cypriots…


…which raised a lot of criticism for the ECB

Probably not the last chart on Japan, but I like this one: I call your 20 and I raise 50!


Beautiful chart on the various forms of flu and possible interactions


The Big Mac index on the price of… The Economist itself!
