  • 2. Consolidated Media ReportSee each paragraph for specific data measurement period Worldwide Statistics The Economist Magazine The Economist was established in 1843 to take part in “a severe contest between intelligence, which presses forward, and unworthy, timid ignorance obstructing our progress.” Today The Economist acts as a compass for “Ideas People” as they look for guidance in an increasingly topsy-turvy international world. The Economist App The Economist app replicates the lean-back, immersive experience that readers get in print. Readers are able to authenticate their existing print subscription, purchase a digital subscription, buy single copies or read the free Editor’s Highlights. Although the editorial is the same as the printed edition, the advertising is sold separately, and the iPad version provides the ability for interactive features. The Economist App Average Weekly Unique Devices 631,967 Month of June 2012 The Economist Online The Economist online is the home of intelligent analysis, discussion and debate. Completely redesigned in 2010, the site contains the complete print edition (behind a pay barrier). It also includes channels on politics, business, culture, science and technology, as well as 20 editorial blogs. To engage our audience of “Ideas People” there is a series of online debates, a bi-weekly poll on “What the world thinks”, and a conversation cloud so users can easily find the topics of discussion that interest them.
