This magazine has a long history. During the Great Irish Famine, it editorialized that the victims "probably deserved" their fate. As a tireless cheerleader for the IMF and World Bank "restructuring" programs, we see that this publication has changed little. These programs imposed on debtor countries have been about as destructive to the people as Mao's Great Leap Forward. Whereas, the latter was mercifully stopped the former has continued for decades. This magazine is hardly an unbiased source.

A very informative magazine (that calls itself a newspaper). In my opinion it does an excellent job covering international news with on the ground reporting throughout the world, especially in Africa and Asia. And true to its title The Economist does focus on economic issues in a reasonably balanced way, but tending towards a free-market perspective. In addition to the international outlook various columnists have their analysis from the region they are based in. Warning: it is a dense well packed read, you would commit a lot of time reading cover to cover. To save time you could read The Leaders section, it gives a quick summary of the in depth articles.
