    Definitely. You can get 12 issues for £12, and a free 1GB memory stick. The magazine itself is really good, especially if you want to keep up with the world. My subscription has lapsed, but I keep getting the Politics This Week emails. Definitely invest in it.

    Yep, you should.

    The quality of journalism is unmatched - and it covers your areas of interest perfectly.

    I read it, but only because there was an offer for students (£2 for 30 copies). But generally, yes it is a good read. The 'leaders' (focus articles of the weak) are in-depth but easy to understand.

    I have to say it is the best magazine I have ever subscribed to, I find that it in fact saves money because rather than needing to buy a daily paper I can get away with only receiving my economist. Also it has some really interesting special quarterly supplements, such as technology, which provide you with interesting insights into a number of areas that I wouldn't usually go and research.

    It's really good, but I don't pay for it. I browse the site (there is an article per week limit, though) and the weekly copy is fortunately kept in my college's library.

    It's excellent, though, and worth paying for.

    waste of money

    get a subscription to the financial times instead at 50p a day. Get news on economics plus business/finance where the economist is lacking

    Wow it sounds good. Is it still worth keeping up with my online news though? It would seem weird relying on a monthly magazine - does it ever seem out of date?

    The economist used to be good, with some coverage dissenting from the standard, but not any more.Buy the Financial Times instead.

      It's weekly, not monthly. I find that reading daily newspapers is a waste of time.
