The Only "Real" Newspaper - The Economist,
This review is from: The Economist (Magazine)
Since 1843 this leading weekly news and international affairs "newspaper" (magazine) has first informed the British Empire and now readers globally with their detailed, fair & balanced analysis of the most important topics in world news, business, finance and international affairs that occurred during the week.
The magazines format (organization) makes it easy for the reader. The first section starts with a concise summary of the important world news, politics & business of the week. This is followed by Leaders which gives an in depth analysis of major issues in international affairs & economics. If you do not have any further time to read, this information will give you the essentials from the week and you will be more informed than most people who read other weekly news magazines.
The rest of the magazine is divided into the flowing sections with in-depth articles on various tops and issues pertinent to those countries or areas.

I have subscribed off and on since I studied for my International MBA back in the 1980's. So turn off that 24 hour news TV, unsubscribe from the newspaper and subscribe to the Economist. You will be more informed and less "stressed" from the daily news "babble" It is worth the price and the time involved in reading it.
