Summary: The magazine is excellent, but don't buy it here
Comment: I am a fan of the magazine and think it's one of the best news/current affairs publications out there.

However...

my wife and I received a subscription as a wedding gift. It took a more than 4 months to finally get activated. In that time, no one at the economist would help me ('talk to Amazon'), and no one at Amazon would help me - first, I had to get the friend who bought it for us to talk to them, which was a hassle. Second, they told him that everything was fine and that (guess what?) he'd have to chase it up with the economist.

Finally the subscription did surface and the magazines started arriving... like many people, we'd moved after the wedding. It took me several phone calls, emails, and attempts to use the online database (and another two months) to get my address successfully changed in the economist's database. You'd think that the economist, of all things, would have an efficient business operation.

So after 6 months (!) we're finally getting the magazine as we should be.

If you want the economist, I'd recommend subscribing directly from the economist's website itself, and not going through a middle-man like amazon.

Summary: Cuts through the "fluff"
Comment: I love the economist. Not a whole bunch of advertisements or articles about "how great Mr. X businessman is". Gives facts about current events in the world.

I was concerned that the articles would be slightly behind due to its weekly instead of daily publication, but I find that I get my daily news through other sources, and supplement with the Economist. The Economist goes in much more depth than most daily publications.

Summary: great magazine
Comment: This is an all around great magazine if you like to keep up with current events. Especially with all the economic ups and downs right now, it is full of information. In many ways, I like it more than a newspaper, and it is published weekly. Worth the money for the subscription. Also I checked several discounts and it was cheaper through Amazon.

Summary: The Economist Magazine-Hard Hitting Journalism and Comical Covers
Comment: The special reports are useful for getting perspective on today's major issues.Weekly publication insures that the issues are not stale by the time they get around to providing their own analysis.The Wall Street Journal will cover the issues and how you will be affected now,but the economist has more of a global perspective and will focus on different regions of the globe. This is also a great publication if you desire to be that typical haughty stand-offish sort of fellow(haha,it can have the effect of making you look like a smug a-hole), but overall this is a great product.Im satisified with my subscription.

Summary: a gift for my husband
Comment: My husband expressed an interest in this magazine after reading a few issues at our daughter's house. Since he never reads anything, I bought him a subscription immediately! He is very pleased with it.
