The Economist

 

 

Product Description

From the Publisher
A weekly news and business publication written for top business decision-makers and opinion leaders who need a wide range of information and views on world events. It explores the close ties between domestic and international issues, business, finance, current affairs, science and technology.

Product Description

A weekly newsmagazine of world politics and current affairs, business, finance and science published in London, England.

 

For close to 10 years now The Economist has served as my principal source of news. That's not to say my exclusive...I'm a news junkie. I probably watch 2 hours and read 2 hours of news everyday. However, if forced, I would probably concede 75% of my other news sources if it was between them and my Economist.

I love this magazine for too many reasons to list here, but among the most significant are these:

It's refreshingly opinionated. While I don't agree with plenty of the positions the magazine takes, they thoroughly and fairly examine each major perspective, then actually render an opinion. In an age when (in the US at least) major news sources claim to be unbiased (CNN, FOX, NY Times), but often drench you in bias via nuance, it's nice to at least know where the storywriter stands. I find I soak up much more information when I don't have to keep my bull**** filter on and parse out veiled opinion.

In addition to that, I think most will appreciate the compact nature of The Economist. Unlike most magazines (many of which are 2-4 times as voluminous, this one stays slim, yet in my opinion, manages to pack in 2-4 times more information. That inversion owes largely to the lack of advertisements that riddle most other comparable periodicals.

Lastly, but perhaps most importantly, The Economist is among the most diverse in its coverage of news worldwide. Each issue contains fascinating report from every big corner and small cranny of this bustling planet.

So, in summary, I'm a raving fan of The Economist. For those of you considering subscription, I highly recommend. For those of you who've already subscribed, congratulations...you may also want to consider checking out Wired Magazine. While a very different magazine, I regard Wired as a cool younger cousin of The Economist.

Enjoy,

The Economist - not just for Economists!

Full review

The Economist is a fantastic magazine, and it's a shame that the name does put some people off, as for it, it's the best current affairs/political news magazine that you can get in England. And one of the best in the world aswell, especially good considering that you can buy it in almost every country, and it will always be printed in English!

I stared reading it because I was studying Economics for A-level and I was told by my teacher at the time that I needed to get it and read the articles relevant to the Applied Economics part of my course. I then carried on reading it when I started working in my Gap Year, and have carried on throughout university.. and I don't even study Economics anymore!

About a year ago, the format, and layout of the magazine changed, and it's not much more reader-friendly and attractive. There is colour in it, not just in photos, but also in illustrations, and the whole package is much easier on the eye, which should be a good way of making accessible to more people.

So, a little bit of detail about what you get...

******************************************************
SECTIONS

Wherever you are in the world, The Economist always has the same sections. The amount of articles printed in each will very depending on where you are though - for example, I'm currently in Italy, so I find that there are more articles on continental Europe and less on Britain specifically.

The sections you get are:

-THE WORLD THIS WEEK
A 2-page summaryof the weeks' events, one for politics and one for business. A nice
way of knowing what's happened in case you've missed some major news.

-LEADERS
5 or 6 articles on areas of particular interest this week. Always pratical articles as oppose
to theoretical ones, these are concerned with events that are at the forefront of today's
news.

-LETTERS
No
t my favourite section - letters from readers, often from people who have been written
about, or defending their companies that have been written about. Often too partisan for
me, but sometimes interesting viewpoints worth reading.

-EUROPE
-BRITAIN
-MIDDLE EAST AND AFRICA
-UNITED STATES
-THE AMERICAS
-ASIA
Each region has its own section (Australasia pops up in the Asia section when it has its
own worthy news items!) These are a mixture of articles on politics and business, and
range from informative fact-based ones, to opinions on major issues that are already
well-known.

-BUSINESS
Containing articles about businesses throughout the world, again it varies between
major stories and new opinions on little-covered companies. Generally focuses on the
big players though (to give you an idea this week's includes Cable & Wireless and Nike).
There are also regularly articles on whole industries, or individual market (Japanese
Banking for example)

-FINANCE AND ECONOMICS
This is the one area than the non-Economists or non-business-minded or interested of
you will find dull at times. At times, there can be articles in this section that could equally
be found in the Business Section, but it also contains the more theoretical articles aswell - there is a weekly Economics Focus, which is clearly not going to appeal to everyone!

-SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY
This section varies in size from week to week, but there can often be very interesting
articles on major scientific issues/debates. Whilst not the New Scientiest, it does make
interesting and broadens the spectrum of the coverage somewhat.

-BOOKS AND ARTS
A nod to the fact that people interested in business and politics also read and listen to
music. The choices can often be a little hig hbrow
, and not mass-market, but it can at the
same time introduce you to some little-known gems

-ECONOMIC AND FINANCIAL INDICATORS
-EMERGING-MARKET INDICATORS
Not the most riveting of sections, and not really somethign you can read - more to
observe and see if there's anything of interest. One to avoid if you want a general
news/economics/politics coverage but do not need spefic market data.

******************************************************
SPECIAL REPORTS

In addition to this weekly mass of information, generally between 100 and 150 pages, there are always guest writers, and special sections. These are one of my favourite parts ot the magazine as you get notable figures writing about their chosen subjects. In recent weeks, the British Foreign Secretary, Jack Straw, has written about an European Constitution and Robert Zoellick, the US Trade Minister, has written about the abolition of tarriffs.

There are also the full reports at least once a month. In the last few months, there have been country reports on France and Germany, both lasting about 20 pages, including articles on the economy, businesses, and the political situation.

This week, there is a technology installment, Technology Quarterly, which has a lot of interesting articles about currrent and future technologies, this time concentrating to a large extent on the Biotechnology industry. These reports are informative and extremely interesting.

******************************************************
WRITERS

One of the most interesting features of the Economist is the fact that 95% of the authors are not given an author's name. Whilst there is a wide range of opinions (especially on controversial political situations), all opinions come under the Economist's banner, and this certainly lends in a greater sense of independence and impartiality. You do not get to know the biases of ce rtain auth
ors as you can in Daily Newspapers.

There are 3 colums that appear weekly, and there are also excellent. They are:
-Bagehot (Britain)
-Lexington (USA)
-Charlemagne (Europe)

These are all a page long, and therefore long enough to provide a detailed analysis and comment of a specific issue. These are without doubt my favourite part of the Economist.

******************************************************
CONCLUSION

So, as you can see, The Economist is wide-ranging in what it covers, both in terms of geographical reach, and the range of issues it covers. The writing is top-draw, and unbiased, and you are bound to get both sides of any opinion, especially for a political situation.

In my opinion, this is a great magazine for anyone who wants to keep up with what's going on in the world of Politics and Business, and doens't want to read business pages every day aswell as the entire 'Foreign' sections of newspapers.

You can buy it almost anywhere, there is a standard price around the world, and you know it will be out on a Friday everywhere, and up to date with the news... what more can you want...!
