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."

Established in 1843 by James Wilson (a hat maker) to advocate for free trade, The Economist is a weekly magazine offering timely reporting, concise commentary and comprehensive analysis of global news.

With objective authority, clarity and wit, The Economist presents the world's political, business,
scientific, technological and cultural affairs and the connections between them. It delivers its content through a range of formats, from the magazine, the web to various electronic devices. Because of its global editorial perspective, it is read by more of the world's political and business leaders than any other magazine.

The Economist print and digital editions have a worldwide total audited circulation of over 1.4 million copies and is read in over 200 countries.

The Digital Edition replicates the lean-back, immersive and uninterrupted experience
that readers get in print. It is designed to ensure the best possible user
experience with an emphasis on simple and clean functionality.

The Economist Online provides insight, analysis and community for our audience to explore and engage. It is the premier destination for intelligent discussion and debate. Every month, over 10 million unique users visit The Economist online.

Editorial Philosophy

Our vision of the world, our style and our whole philosophy are different from other publications. We are international, we stress the links between politics and business, we are irreverent and we are independent.
