The Economist is an English-language news and international affairs publication. It is published weekly and although called a newspaper it looks more like a glossy magazine.
Its primary focus is global news, politics and business. However you will also find relevant sections on science, technology, and the arts. Every two months, they also release an in-depth report on certain hot topics. Every three months a technology report called Technology Quarterly is released which focuses on trends and developments in science and technology.
We speak to a lot of students who don’t realise that as a member of the University, we have access to the current newspaper in print and online, and the Economist archive, dating back to 1843.
