  • Big Deterioration

    By itravel4music
    Give me back the “legacy” version. The new app is clunky and slow. (I won’t get into how the content has deteriorated over the years…it’s still better than most.)

    Used it almost daily. But now it doesn’t let me log in. I will update this review if/when the app is fixed.
  • The Economist: An Essential Source

    By James R 99
    A must read source for international news. Coupled with its editorial staff’s chauvinistic English prejudices this publication provides a continuous source of news and humor.
  • Best of the lot

    Winston Churchill said that democracy is the worst kind of government … except for all the others. The Economist is parochial (Oxbridge/London), ideological (free market), hostile (eg towards the Chinese government), and so on. The Economist journalists and editors know they’re smart, which is annoying. But the thing is, they are smart - there are great insights in almost every issue. They’re less parochial, and they wear their ideology on their sleeves. The Economist is the least bad news outlet evah!
  • A Source I Can Trust

    By AwayAtSchool
    I’ve been reading the Economist for more than 40 years. I read it when I was conservative republican in my mid-thirties. I read it today in my seventies as a democrat. Despite the fact that my own views have shifted over time, I have always been able to depend on the Economist to give it to me straight—without the hyperbole, bias or the desire to shock, enrage or terrify that so many other news sources use to attract and retain reader/viewers. What a relief. I love being able to read The Economist without the need to activate the filters I use when reading or viewing other news sources.
  • Variety of news

  • For almost 200 years…

    By Hartcohen
    …The Economist has provided thoughtful, independent, fact based journalism and opinion. I eagerly await each week’s articles—now served up daily on the web—to find out what’s happening all over the world. No source offers comparable, centrist reporting on global news and events (not just business as the title suggests) in a more even handed manner. Thank you Zanny Minton Beddoes!
  • Great content, crap app

  • Quietly the best publication

    By mrsimcard
    I now read The Economist every single week. The articles are concise and the pieces are relevant. Whenever I need to get up to speed on what is happening in the worlds economy I turn to the Economist. I have the magazine along with a digital subscription and this puts me in a strong position every week. Thank you
