Edited in London since 1843, The Economist is a weekly international news and business publication, offering clear reporting, commentary and analysis on world current affairs, business, finance, science and technology, culture, society, media and the arts. As noted on its contents page, The Economist's goal is to "take part in a severe contest between intelligence, which presses forward, and an unworthy, timid ignorance obstructing our progress." The Economist is read by more of the world's political and business leaders than any other magazine. In March 2012 print circulation stood at over 1.5m while digital circulation was 123,000 (digital editions are available on Android, iPhone and iPad and other devices).
