Disadvantages: Lenghty read for those short of time
I have been reading the economist for over a year now, initially on their app which provides the many stories for free. This is a great option for those of use who do not have a lot of time and want to just read the main articles. I found it a great way to spend a Saturday morning. For those who are put off by its name, the economist offers far more than an economic perspective of the world. The Economist offers a different perspective on world news, political stories and financial analysis. I like the economist as it a nice middle ground between the biased feel of sky and fox and the staid feel of cnn and bbc, both in their online and tv versions. There is always an interesting mix of stories in the economist. The app is free but will not provide you with the full scope of the economist and I feel that buying the economist on subsription is definitely worth as you can get a lot of bang for your buck. However I would say if your time is limited the free economist app might be more appropriate as you would definitely want a bit of free time during the week to read the economist cover to cover. The economist is definitely worth picking up.
Summary: Overall a great read
