Do you care about economy?

Advantages: Good report on macro politic and economy
Disadvantages: Not too indepth if you work in finance
Let me start by saying that I would recommend The Economist to most people, but for me, it is not worth not only buying it, but also reading it!
A paradox? A Contradiction in terms?
Well, The Economist is very well written and covers mainly Economy and social affairs and business. Most of the articles do not display the name of the author, the publications comes up once a week, costs 3.25 in UK and is still registered as a newspaper. It contains up to date facts abouot politic, and macro economy.
I would surely recommend it to ANYONE who is NOT working in finance. I work in finance and for me The Economist is probably a bit too old, since I read newwires most of the day, and too vague.
I would surely recommend it to students, both in UK and abroad and to the so called general public. The style of the Economist is easy to follow and it is not right or left winged. It tends to explain facts, give both sides of the coin and leave some question open.
I like the writing style of The Economist very well. When I began studying English, it was one of my favourite readings.
Summary: Well written
