Here's a couple of interesting articles from The Economist about the U.S. of A:
First, the great experiment of New York's public schools.
Second, what you can learn about America from Dollywood.
And finally, a review from the Economist on Pierre Bayard's book about 'how to talk about books you haven't read'.
