The Economist - Odd Cryptic Cover

Post by notmartha » Tue Jan 13, 2015 5:15 am

The Economist is... (from here)
... an English-language weekly newspaper owned by The Economist Newspaper Ltd and edited in offices in London.

The publication belongs to The Economist Group, half of which is owned by Pearson PLC via the Financial Times. A group of independent shareholders, including many members of the staff and the Rothschild banking family of England, owns the rest. A board of trustees formally appoints the editor, who cannot be removed without its permission. Although The Economist has a global emphasis and scope, about two-thirds of the 75 staff journalists are based in London. As of March 2013, the Economist Group declared operating profit of £68m.

The Economist claims that it "is not a chronicle of economics". Rather, it aims "to take part in a severe contest between intelligence, which presses forward, and an unworthy, timid ignorance obstructing our progress".
This isn't just any magazine, but a magazine by and for the elite. Check it out...

A good starting point might be translation of the text.
