“Very poor customer service”

Written on: 07/09/2011

The magazine content is great. However I’ve had problems with the customer service support since the start. I signed up under an offer where a free gift (a handbag) was to be sent to me within 6-8 weeks. When no handbag turned up I emailed the Singapore support team (its an Asian subscription) on August 30th but did not receive a response till I sent a follow up email. On September 4th they wrote they were ordering a replacement but have not responded since to my requests to elaborate on… Read Full Review

“Truthfully the Economist must be the only "business"...”

Written on: 22/08/2005 by kolin2003 (11 reviews written)

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....”

Written on: 06/03/2004 by Robertx (2 reviews written)

The Economist is a prestigious weekly news magazine. The editorials are highly stimulating and most of the sections offer a view of
-European
-US
-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
