Summary Some international headlines just won't stop. There's endless fighting in Ukraine. So, let’s find out where those weapons are coming from. Greece may default on its loans unless it reforms its tax system. We can calculate how many Greek citizens actually pay taxes. Nigeria’s elections are plagued by corruption. Let’s have a look at the how much was being transferred to politicians from Swiss bank accounts.
