The Economist: "First published in September 1843 to take part in a severe contest between intelligence, which presses forward, and an unworthy, timid ignorance obstructing our progress."
Do you want to stay on top of international affairs? Understand current affects of the globally economy? Know why the retirement age must go up to 70? Or what will influence does Qaddafis' tyranny has over Libya's current political turmoil? The Economist is your calling.
Comprehending and debating the current global economic distress, the affects of oil and Libya, or the United States congressional stalemate isn't left to just just policy makers or highly influential executives anymore. You too are able to grasp the full affects of both sides of the argument.
The weekly newspaper: The Economist was founded by James Wilson, a Scottish businessman and banker, in 1843. Its edited office is located at the City of Westminster, London, England. It takes an editorial stance on current international affairs, business, politics and occasionally art & literature as well.
I read this weekly to stay well informed of what is happening all around. And why not? Listening to what's on T.V. or the radio is just not enough anymore. Sometimes you hear things but is it all of the information you need to make a good judgement? Having another source doesn't hurt.
Trust me, when people know you read The Economist, you'll be an intellectual delight to those around you!
