    Thanks for those papers Harry. I only had a quick squiz of them all but I didn’t notice anything explaining the huge spike in deaths in (was it) 2001?

    fxh, The spike due to the surge in availability of cheap, relatively pure heroin. When availability declined so did the overdoses.

    Svetlana Danilkana was my Microeconomics lecturer this semester – one of the most enjoyable lecturers I have had in two and a half years of University so far – so I will definitely have to give these papers a close reading.
