    Highest Rated Consumer Review by the Community

  • Intelligent World News Coverage, to Keep you in Touch

    Oct 1, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: The depth of writing; Graphic illustrations and economic tables
    Cons: High subscription and cover prices

    Summary: I subscribe to a large number of magazines. Most of my subscriptions were complimentary, given to me free of charge by the publisher. Others have to be paid for and some of them have proven to be more valuable and more enjoyable than others. I change m ... read more

  • The Economist Magazine: Watered Down by Politics

    Jan 2, 2014 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Some good articles, Lack of Advertisements, Valuable Reading Time
    Cons: Focus is more political than anything else, sometimes boring

    Summary: It appears that every decision that is made in Washington, somehow has an effect on our economy. That's at least the view from both my opinion, and the pages that are in each issue of The Economist Magazine. I can understand it when interest ... read more

  • Understanding the state of the world

    Feb 2, 2009 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Global scope, analytical articles, fact based, information trumps entertainment, statistical data, weekly economic indicators.
    Cons: None

    Summary: The Economist is a weekly British news and international affairs magazine with articles on current affairs, business, the economy, science, and technology. It is sold extensively in both Europe and North America, and the target audience is educated ... read more

  • Outstanding Perspective; Thorough Information

    Jan 26, 2008 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: International perspective; securities markets coverage; timely issues
    Cons: slight conservative perspective; high cost

    Summary: I've subscribed to the Economist for about 6 months now. I was always aware of the magazine as having solid economic information and a hefty subscription price. I became acquainted with the magazine in my Chiropractor's office. I saw a coupon for 6 moths ... read more

  • Not perfect, but clearly best weekly news magazine

    May 11, 2003 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Common-sense, relatively balanced view on current events; well-written
    Cons: British, conservative bias to many issues

    Summary: Like many of the other reviewers, I'm a big fan of the magazine. No, it's not perfect. There is that certain snide Britishness, and its pro-business/conservative bias, that many may object to, but if you're aware of it, you can take that into account ... read more

  • The best of a very bad lot....

    Jan 26, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Best general news magazine in existence
    Cons: Slickness too often masks shallowness

    Summary: The best reasons for buying the Economist? Time, Newsweek, US Snooze and World Report, etc. It is, against excruciatingly weak competition, the best general news magazine in existence. Relatively long articles on a broad range of topics and countries. ... read more

  • The Very Best Global News Source!

    Aug 20, 2001 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Unbiased,global news. In-depth coverage of countries in their Special Reports
    Cons: No Cons.

    Summary: This British magazine covers global news fairly and with a critical eye. The in-depth coverage of its articles on the events of various countries is presented with a frank and open slant that I have not seen in other global magazines. Because ... read more

  • The Best News Magazine Available

    Jul 19, 2001 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Thorough discussion of issues, insightful editorials, witty commentary, avoids sensationalism.
    Cons: Slight over emphasis on British politics, as well as economic news.

    Summary: The Economist is one of the few news magazines available that offers complete reporting and analysis of international political and economic news. Thankfully, this analysis comes without the sensationalism that pervades most news magazines. For instance, ... read more

  • How to enrich your brain power

    Jul 9, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: well written, informative, intelligent, a paragon of newsmagazines
    Cons: nothing, there aren't any

    Summary: The Economist. As the name of a magazine, it brings to mind some stuffy thing carried about by investment bankers and day traders, those uptight guys who have the financial information news network on 24/7. If you are judging this magazine by it's title, ... read more

  • Among weekly news magazines, none is better

    Jun 29, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Insightful and extremely well-written, considerable breadth of topics, occasional biting humor
    Cons: Better than any other newsweekly magazine, but readers should seek other perspectives as well

    Summary: Although I often disagree with this magazine's conclusions, particularly regarding US politics, The Economist is an indispensible alternative to the points of view expressed in most domestic news media. In addition, no comparable publication covers a ... read more

  • More Fun Than An Alan Greenspan Kegger!!!

    Mar 30, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Perfection in digestible international news.
    Cons: Digs deep into few topics.

    Summary: Ok, I'll admit it, your humble Epinionator is also a terrible content junkie. I will devour all information accessible to me, surfing all the main news sites daily and watching The O'Reilly Factor dogmatically. I live for news, and I believe that those ... read more

  • It's like TIME magazine on steroids; even Clinton subscribes

    Mar 17, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: More and in-depth and lacks as much inter-article advertising as USNews, TIME, etc.
    Cons: "humor" can get tiresome

    Summary: I used to subscribe to TIME, but I canceled my subscription in favor of The Economist (TE) because (in no particular order): a) The advertisements are sparser in TE; they are also more clumped together in the back. TIME seemed to be ... read more

  • Finest news magazine in the world

    Dec 14, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great news, surveys, and in depth reporting
    Cons: slavishly pro-business, and an okay at best arts section

    Summary: This magazine was recommended to me by a professor in a European history class. I picked it up, and was taken immediately. I'm an news junky of the worst sort, and this magazine really does have it all. This is the finest English language news ... read more

  • The One Magazine to Read

    Dec 14, 2000 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Know a Little bit about Everything
    Cons: None

    Summary: I have subscribed to the Economist since 1981. If you read this one magazine each week, you will know a little bit about everything that is happening right now in the world. It also goes into many stories in a more in-depth way than most popular news ... read more

  • Insightful and intelligent

    Oct 21, 2000 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Insightful, accurate
    Cons: price

    Summary: The first time I read "The Economist" was on a flight from Connecticut to California. I had picked it up after a friend of mine father recommended it. At first it was frustrating arguing any worldly manner with him because he would say ... read more

  • If there is only one magazine you read every week,

    Oct 19, 2000 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: great analysis, excellent research, well-written
    Cons: none that I can think of...

    Summary: Please read The Economist. For anyone interested in the world we live in, there could not be a more objective, better-researched or better-written newspaper than this. It truly amazes me how they manage to come up with so much eminently readable ... read more

  • The Reigning Champion of Newsweeklies

    Oct 6, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Unmatched coverage and depth of worldwide issues
    Cons: Huh?

    Summary: After over eight thousand issues, England's weekly newsmagazine The Economist retains its unchallenged title of the world’s best weekly news magazine, completely burying such second-raters as Time and Newsweek in the U.S. and ... read more

  • A Must for Anyone Wanting a College Grad's View of the World

    Aug 17, 2000 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Reviews, Writing, Quality of Analysis
    Cons: Must Appreciate British Humor. Expensive

    Summary: At some point in the national media, it was pointed out that the typical American weeklys (Newsweek & Time) were written for someone with a 10th grade education. How true it is. The Economist, a British newsweekly, is the only magazine on the ... read more

  • It should be your only newsmagazine

    Aug 13, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Intelligent, global focus, interesting
    Cons: Expensive

    Summary: My biases may be apparent again in this review. As my fiancée unfailingly points out I have an undying love for all things British but in the case of the Economist I feel that is entirely justified. I have been a reader of the magazine since being at ... read more

  • Rolls Royce of Information

    Jul 27, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Rich full bodied news and analysis
    Cons: Costly

    Summary: I buy the Economist every week simply because it is the most comprehensive, intelligent, and interesting source of news on the planet today. This is not a picture magazine filled with glossy photos of the latest celebrity fad. If you believe ... read more
