With a growing global circulation and a reputation for insightful analysis and perspective on every aspect of world events, The Economist is one of the most widely recognised and well-read current affairs publications. The paper covers politics, business, science and technology, and books and arts, concluding each week with the obituary. In addition to the web-only content such as blogs, debates and audio/video programmes available on the website, The Economist is available to download for reading on Android, Blackberry PlayBook, iPhone or iPad devices. The Economist Espresso, our daily briefing smartphone app, is also available for download via iTunes App Store or Google Play.
From its beginnings in 1843, when The Economist newspaper was founded by a Scottish hat manufacturer to further the cause of free trade, The Economist Group has evolved into a global media company that develops intelligent brands for the intellectually curious.
Headquartered in London, The Economist Group has offices and people across the globe, and is valued by its customers for its world-class insights and rigorous analysis.
Our vision of the world, our style and our whole philosophy are different. We are international, we stress the links between politics and business, we are sometimes irreverent and we are always independent. That philosophy is at the core of how we operate internally as well: at the Group you have a voice, and your voice is expected, heard and respected.
We value individuals who think differently and can challenge the status quo. Working at The Economist Group, wherever you start, you will continue to learn and develop your career. We will encourage you to think about and explore other positions, business units and countries that will help you and the company grow. We are a global business with a global view—working with us will take you places both physically and intellectually.
