“MAN is born free but is everywhere in debt.” So begins The Economist’s special report on debt from last week.

I mean this read this magazine more, but it’s my husband’s weekly and I’m barely treading water trying to keep up with The New Yorker. I’m never that taken with the visuals in The Economist, but for the first time the illustrations in this special report caught my attention. They are by Marie-Helene Jeeves and I hope the magazine will feature more artwork like this to balance all the standard stock photos that seem to accompany the rest of their articles.
