Yahoo! News - Belief in Hell Boosts Growth: Fed Report: "Economists searching for reasons why some nations are richer than others have found that those with a wide belief in hell are less corrupt and more prosperous, according to a report by the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis.
Researchers at the regional Federal Reserve bank acknowledged the importance of productivity and investment in the economic process but looked at some recent unconventional efforts to explain differences in national prosperity."
I'll take "not understanding the difference between causation and correlation" for 1600, Alex.

On edit: I've given this a little more thought, and this is a seriously screwed up conclusion. All of South and Central America is much more religious than America (that heavy Catholic thing), and their economies are in the crapper, and corruption is almost as bad as the whole Halliburton/Cheney situation here.
