  • The advertising in it is sparse, so the magazine seems small by today's standards, but really it's just a whopping amount of news condensed into a convenient size
  • It's great because it's incredibly informative and broader in its scope of coverage than anything else I know
  • Even if you are liberal and don't agree with it (the Economist drifts to the conservative), it's great to have the opinion there
  • The problem with purely objective news is that, after reading the story, it can be difficult to begin thinking/developing an opinion about it because the story is devoid of slant
  • It's about $5 in the US for the weekly issue, but man is it worth it

      In the future they will have a single pill that contains all the nutrients you need. You take the pill and you don’t have to eat again for maybe a day, depending on how they design it. Well, the Economist is today’s news magazine version of the Food Pill of the Future.

      The advertising in it is sparse, so the magazine seems small by today’s standards, but really it’s just a


      whopping amount of news condensed into a convenient size. It’s great because it’s incredibly informative and broader in its scope of coverage than anything else I know.

      They will literally devote as many pages to South American news as they will to American. Go figure.

      They write with a sophisticated style as well, so the reading voice in your brain sounds really intelligent as you go. Most news media ...


      • today preaches objectivity, but the Economist is gloriously biased.

        Most articles, thought-out and well-articulated, end with a brief opinion by the writer. Even if you are liberal and don’t agree with it (the Economist drifts to the conservative), it’s great to have the opinion there.

        The problem with purely objective news is that, after reading the story, it can be difficult to begin thinking/developing an opinion about it because the story

        is devoid of slant. It’s like trying to make a fire with the sun, but no magnifying glass.

        So, I recommend the Economist wholeheartedly. It’s about $5 in the US for the weekly issue, but man is it worth it.

        It’s easy to skim for the news you want and most articles are relatively concise. My review: a 10, as it’s the best news magazine out there.

        It has dignity.
