The latest Socionomist is out with a nice article comparing alcohol prohibition to the War on Drugs with some really fascinating correlations and interesting detail on the current status of the narcotraficantes in Mexico. In addition, for those of you that remember the "U.S. Serial Killers and Bear Markets" chart from the 2004 Theorist, it is reprinted here along with a some updated info from Dr. Ken Olson on murder rates vs. social mood (as measured by market indices).
Good stuff. Feel free to discuss in the Comments section if you are so inclined.
