The Economist's Advent Calendar

I started reading The Economist in high school -- it made me sound really smart when I cited it in speech competitions.  I've been a subscriber for a while, and while I love the print magazine, the iPad version is even better.  (It is an expensive magazine, but they have good deals for academics.)  Anyway, The Economist has begun an Advent Calendar feature, in which it unveils an interesting chart or graph each day until Christmas.  Seven are revealed already.  Check it out.

My favorite so far is the map of northern India and Pakistan which shows all of the border disputes between India, Pakistan, and China (via Tibet).  An interesting story and graphic about the lingering effects of arbitrary, colonial borders.
