    Back in my day it was a letter rather than any online communication.

    Did 'Economics Today' come in handy? I personally am not going to subscribe to both 'The Economist and 'Economics Today' as I most likely won't read both. I've ordered the Anforme revision guide and I've also purchased:

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/OCR-AS-Econo...6630060&sr=8-7

    I find these guides useful and decided to order it alongside the Anforme revision guide. Which board are you on for Economics if you don't mind me asking?
    Economics Today was a bit technical, but some of the articles are really handy when it comes to essays. The two magazines are very different though, I would say the Economist is more politics than economics.

    My board is WJEC, that unknown one that nobody does because it's alot harder than the others.

    Joke of the day:

    "A little boy goes to his dad and asks, "What is politics?"

    Dad says, "Well son, let me try to explain it this way: I'm the breadwinner of the family, so let's call me capitalism. Your Mom, she's the administrator of the money, so we'll call her the Government. We're here to take care of your needs, so we'll call you the people. The nanny, we'll consider her the Working Class. And your baby brother, we'll call him the Future. Now, think about that and see if that makes sense,"

    So the little boy goes off to bed thinking about what dad had said.

    Later that night, he hears his baby brother crying, so he gets up to check on him. He finds that the baby has severely soiled his diaper. So the little boy goes to his parents' room and finds his mother sound asleep. Not wanting to wake her, he goes to the nanny's room. Finding the door locked, he peeks in the keyhole and sees his father in bed with the nanny. He gives up and goes back to bed. The next morning, the little boy says to his father, "Dad, I think I understand the concept of politics now."

    The father says, "Good son, tell me in your own words what you think politics is all about."

    The little boy replies, "Well, while Capitalism is screwing the Working Class, the Government is sound asleep, the People are being ignored and the Future is in deep poo.""

    Towers Watson (I don't know if they have a Chinese name.) Thanks!

    And I could only see one typo (公司).


    EDIT: Some of the above doesn't show up properly for me, the last characters in the brackets should read "Zhōngwén míngzi".

    EDIT 2: Apparently their Chinese name is 韬睿惠悦 (Tāoruì Huìyuè).

    Probably not if it doesn't have a Chinese presence. You're welcome (always thought this was a weird phrase as it means impolite and rude aswell.)


    。。。Oh, just read your Edit 2.

    That's why if I learn Chinese properly I'd probably want to also learn the other typing method, using the strokes instead of the pronunciation.
