  • The Economist
    From the website:

    The Economist's vision of the world, style and philosophy are different from other publications. We are international, we stress the links between politics and business, we are irreverent and we are independent. If it matters in our world we cover it - and cover it well. With brevity, clarity, opinion and wit, we distil what's important on the global agenda and, most importantly, what to make of it. Our objectivity of opinion, originality of insight and advocacy of economic and political freedom set us apart from other publications. That's why six million people read The Economist every week, including the world's leading political and business figures.
