The Economist weekly magazine is widely acclaimed for its thoughtful and provoking analyses of world news, politics, and business. It also has sections on science, technology, books, the arts, and extensive reports on particular issues of current interest. Each week our study group holds a lively discussion based on articles selected from that week’s Economist. Each participant is encouraged, during one of our sessions, to select articles from the current issue and lead our discussion. A subscription to The Economist is required. Information on subscriptions, digital subscriptions, and reduced rates is available at 1-800-456-6086 or www.economistsubscriptions.com.
