    Prime mover? Mario Draghi and the Italian presidency

    Prime mover? Mario Draghi and the Italian presidency

    This week’s secretive votes will determine the next president and the current prime minister looks to be a favourite. But that move would be bad for Italy. Many African countries that are rife with resources remain persistently underdeveloped; we dig into the reasons. And we meet the chefs bringing unsung Native American cuisine to the table.

    Checks and Balance: Left side story

    Checks and Balance: Left side story

    Joe Biden voters are more likely to have a negative view of the United States than those who voted for Donald Trump, according to new research from The Economist. A year since his inauguration, is this miserablism largely a result of President Biden’s recent woes, or is there something inherently gloomy in the left’s mindset?  


    The Economist’s Daniella Raz sifts through the poll findings. We go back to the time when a liberal philosopher imagined a dark future for America. And political psychologist Peter Ditto examines what makes liberal brains tick.  


    John Prideaux presents with Jon Fasman and Charlotte Howard.

Favorite podcast

I have been listening on the economists podcast since 2010. It is my favorite source of business news ever since.

Quality reporting. Interesting and relevant. Mr. Palmer and has a voice like butter. Anne McElvoy is wonderful. Thankful for all the high-quality journalists at The Economist.

Excellent yet lately lacking in nuance

The Economist has been a guiding star of reason throughout my life. I still rank them as one of the most reliable and balanced sources of news and opinion but lately I have felt somewhat let down with their ability to paint both sides of the picture.

On several topics I follow from a variety of different sources I feel they could do a better job at not shying away from uncomfortable truths or raising counter arguments to the established narrative. They have to some extent succumbed to a form of “wokeness light” if you will. They have the intelectual brain power to dissect difficult topics with reason and should exercise that ability without fear.

I would actually rank them as a four but I figured a lower rating would be more likely to jump though their review revision algorithm and it doesn’t hurt to fee you have some catching up to do.
