About 12 weeks ago Our chart matches the value of entire countries' listed firms to individual western companies. All the shares available in India are worth roughly the same as Nestlé; Egypt's are equal to Burger King. This suggests that emerging economies need deeper, more liquid markets, and investors need more perspective http://econ.st/KGkuL1

About 7 weeks ago A new study has found that the brain activity of mathematicians looking at equations correlates with the same area of the emotional brain which many previous studies have reported as active during the experience of beauty in other domains. In other words, formulae can thrill in the way that visual art and music do http://econ.st/1cHKDDA

About 13 weeks ago For almost all its history, planetary science could study only the eight planets that make up the local solar system. But the boom in exoplanet research over the past decade or so has furnished the field with a wealth of data from elsewhere in the galaxy. Much of this has come from a specially designed space telescope called Kepler http://econ.st/1gW9Oml
