Description: Consisting of more than 8,000 issues and 600,000 completely text-searchable pages, since first publication in 1843, the Economist has presented timely reporting, concise commentary and comprehensive analysis of global news every week.

With objective authority, clarity and wit, it presents the world's political, business, scientific, technological and cultural developments and the connections between them. Because of its global editorial perspective, it is read by more of the world's political and business leaders than any other magazine. New full-color images, multiple search indexes, exportable financial tables and a gallery of front covers highlighting a key topic of each week - all combine to offer a primary source of research covering the 19th and 20th centuries.

The easy-to-use resource provides readers with a fundamental collection of high-quality primary material, including every leader, special report, letter and every piece of advertising across a wide range of subject areas. Tabular matter forming the Key Economic Indicators section can be exported and manipulated separately.
