Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
That opening is clever, focusing on Western Europe, thus ignoring the higher suicide rates in Slovenia, Estonia, Hungary and Finland. The fact the Economist ignored Finland suggests that for them "Western Europe" is now purely a geographic term, which makes France third among merely 12 or 13 countries (depending on whether Sweden is in the Economist's "West" or not), which doesn't seem that bad.
