Seriously curious: The Economist explains the facts and figures that turn your world upside down

Seriously curious: The Economist explains the facts and figures that turn your world upside down

Standage, Tom, editor; Economist Newspaper Limited, associated with work

Some questions you never think to ask. Others, you didn't know you didn't know. And some facts are so surprising they cry out for answers. What can a president actually do? Why do cities sink into the ground? Why is Australia seemingly invulnerable to recessions? Why do people in couples do more housework than singletons? The brilliant minds of the 'Economist' collect these questions. Individually, they might seem bite-sized and inconsequential, but taken together they can reveal a whole new world
