You keep on reading about political situations so bad they force large numbers of people to kill themselves. Here’s one about indebted Indian farmers – but there are others about [Russia](http://www.cdi.org/russia/johnson/7257-3.cfm) and, saddest of all, [two small islands near Australia](http://www.guardian.co.uk/australia/story/0,,1803488,00.html).

And I don’t know what conclusions to draw. Has anybody investigated how to stop so many of these people killing themselves? Is the solution to sort out the economy, or could we get away with putting prozac in the water?
