Read "The Economist" religiously?

Like almost every issue?

If yes, Why? If No, why not?

No, because its too expensive.

I do read it occasionally at the bookstore or library, but I am not shelling out that kind of cash for a magazine. Its nothing you can't find online.

My roommate subscribed to the New Yorker to help with the MCAT. I couldn't stand reading the articles in there, a great deal about shopping, dining, and art. Though I did find some interesting articles in there. Does Atul Gawande still write for them?

I read the Economist religiously just because I like being on top of things, but then again, I get it for free because my school gets it electronically.

Because being knowledgeable about world events is always a good thing. It doesn't take the long, they run down the world headlines pretty quickly.

It's boring. We like medicine, not business.

I like to get my news from more reliable (and more importantly) free sources, such as the internet. :laugh:

It actually has very little to do with business. It does focus on the economy (which is related to business, but not the same thing) but does a wonderful job of also talking about world politics, law, technology, the environment, etc.

I also agree. I like the Economist because it does a good job of covering things that happen internationally, and it's a lot more engaging than something like Time magazine. It's just too damn expensive and you don't get it free online.
