In addition to the weekly publications, subscribers to The Economist also receive special benefits, such as “The World in 2012,” a special annual volume that predicts trends for the coming year. Subscribers also get unrestricted access to the online site, with a fully searchable archive dating back to the Neolithic age of 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. For updates on the go, readers can also access The Economist via an iPhone or iPad to peruse the latest photos, articles, charts, and Big Mac index.

Editorial cartoonist of The Economist since 1978, Kevin “Kal” Kallaugher turns his satirical eye on history and holidays in the third edition of An Illustrated Look at the Year Ahead. Unlike those that only print federally mandated opposite days, this month-counter pairs conventional holidays with quirkier factoids, such as James Joyce’s birthday and the anniversary of the earmuff’s patent. The auspicious persons, places, and dates of the month are then laid out in a cartoonish mise en scène, making an excellent gift for those who have an offbeat sense of humor or an offbeat understanding of backwardation.

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.
