Like a favourite 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 to The Economist. Choose between the following options:

  • For $79, you get 51 print issues along with additional subscriber benefits (a $137.19 value).<p>
  • For $12, you get the 2012 Economist wall calendar (a $20.98 value, including shipping)

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. Subscribers to The Economist also receive “The World in 2012,” a special annual volume that predicts trends for the coming year. For updates on the go or “on the sitting down on a park bench enjoying the scenery,” 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.

Alternatively, buyers can opt for a 12”x20” wall calendar hand-drawn by inveterate cartoonist for The Economist Kevin Kallaugher. Detailed illustrations weave notable and obscure global holidays and traditions, the birth of cultural magnates, and political and cultural milestones into memorable work of arts. Proud owners can show off their opposable thumbs or glean little-known cultural facts by flipping through the absurdist illustrations, which highlight events such as the world’s first parachute jump, inaugural rock ‘n roll concert, and annual rattlesnake roundup.

The Economist

The Economist's globe-spanning scope, comprehensive analysis, and unflinching grasp on world issues make it required reading to stay up to date on world news, politics, and business. First published in 1843, the publication still casts itself as a newspaper despite its magazine-style layout; each issue covers the main events of the week, with analysis and opinion sprinkled across its pages for good measure. A conversational tone and anonymity remain calling cards of The Economist's writers, keeping with the belief that what is written is more important than who writes it.
