Two Years with The Economist

My Time with The Economist

For the past two years, I’ve been a loyal reader of The Economist. This magazine talks about a lot of stuff—politics, money matters, and even things like science and culture. Reading it has been a great learning journey for me.

What I like about The Economist is how deep it goes. Take Singapore and Japan, for example. The stories here don’t just give quick news; they really explore what’s happening. This has helped me understand these countries in a much better way. I’ve also always been keen on politics, and this magazine challenges me to think more deeply about it. It gives me a new way to look at things I thought I already knew.

All About Politics and Business

I like how The Economist connects the dots between the world of politics and business. It’s not just about what’s happening; it’s also about why it matters. The magazine shows how a change at a big company can affect things in the world of politics, and vice versa. All of this helps me get a bigger picture of how the world works.

Another bonus is that reading The Economist has helped me learn new words. But I have to admit, not everything sticks. Even if I forget some details, what’s important is how it helps me see the world in a new way.

Looking Back and Ahead

Two years may not seem long, but it’s been enough time to understand some of the bigger themes in our lives, like our successes and failures, and how we bounce back. And that’s what The Economist does—it keeps asking questions that make you think. I’m excited to see where it takes me next.
