It seems incongruous giving The Economist 1 star as it's an excellent magazine. I have no problem with the researchers, contributors etc. This review relates to my experience of trying to set up a subscription. The subscription was a Christmas present for my father who has been reading The Economist for many years. I placed an order online with a credit card and received an email confirmation that the 1 year subscription was in place. So I sat back and relaxed. The fun started when the… Read Full Review

Truthfully the Economist must be the only "business" magazine that a sane person who isn't a director of a FTSE 100 company can read. It is actually slightly unfair to call it a "business" magazine. About 30% of the weekly content is business news and economics issues, about 60% is world affairs, and about 10% is dedicated to its superb science and technology section.
The Economist has mastered the skill of breaking very difficult issues down into comprehensible articles (or sometimes, just… Read Full Review

The Economist is a prestigious weekly news magazine. The editorials are highly stimulating and most of the sections offer a view of
-World affairs news.
There are some supplements and the most important analysis that I saw in the Economist was an article on the Euro and the transition to the single currency system… Read Full Review
