Great institution of the British press, The Economist, founded in 1843 by a Scottish hatter, is the bible for anyone interested in international affairs. Openly liberal, he generally defends free trade, globalization, immigration and cultural liberalism. It is printed in six countries, and 85% of its sales are outside the UK.
None of the articles are signed: a long-standing tradition that the weekly supports with the idea that ‚Äúpersonality and the collective voice matter more than the individual identity of journalists‚ÄĚ.
On the site of The Economist, in addition to the main articles of the journal, there are excellent thematic and geographical dossiers produced by The Economist Intelligence Unit, as well as multimedia content, of the blogging and the schedule of conferences organized by the newspaper around the world. As a bonus: the regular update of the main stock market prices.
The magazine cover may vary between editions (UK, Europe, North America, Asia), but the content is the same; in the UK, however, a few extra pages deal with national news.
The Economist 43.4% is owned by the Italian Agnelli family, the rest of the capital being divided between major British families (Cadbury, Rothschild, Schroders, etc.) and members of the editorial staff.
