A must read for all of you Economist addicts out there. Commercial media just doesn't hold up well when compared to public organizations that do information literacy right. Do you go to the library? Or do you leaf through the Economist on the way to the tournament? The difference is between the athlete who hits the gym, or the one who jogs to the arena after relaxing all week.

You most likely have access to a good research library if you are reading this. Why don't you use it?
