Like a favorite sitcom, a good news publication appears once a week, has a laugh track, and usually ends with a heart-warming moral about international trade. Bone up on the economy's hilarious antics with today's Groupon for subscriptions to The Economist, along with a plethora of subscriber benefits. Choose between the following options:
- For $51, you get 51 digital issues (a $110 value).
- For $65, you get 51 print issues (a $127 value).
The Economist's globe-spanning scope, comprehensive analysis, and crushing, unflinching grasp on world economics keep subscribers up-to-date on world news, politics, and business. In addition to the weekly publications—including the magazine's more than 20 special reports and its technology quarterly—all subscribers also get unrestricted access to the online site, with a fully searchable archive dating back to the Neolithic Internet era (1997), as well as free access to The Economist in audio, which includes the option to listen to digital recordings of all print articles or to download them as a weekly podcast. Print subscribers to The Economist also receive "The World in 2012," a special annual volume that predicts trends for the coming year. Digital subscribers do not have access to "The World in 2012." For updates on the go or “on the sitting down on a park bench enjoying the scenery,” both digital and print subscribers can access The Economist on an iPhone, iPad, or Android; every photo, article, chart, and Big Mac index is delivered to subscribers' devices by Thursday at 4 p.m. eastern time.
