    Money Talks: The great divergence

    Money Talks: The great divergence

    As the covid-19 pandemic continues, disparities in the prospects of economies, industries and businesses are increasing. Host Rachana Shanbhogue and Henry Curr, our economics editor, investigate how the pandemic will recast the global economic order. They talk to Gita Gopinath, chief economist at the IMF, to identify who risks being left behind. And as the pandemic upends labour markets, will governments resist change or embrace the new reality?

    Chagrin, and Barrett: America’s Supreme Court

    Chagrin, and Barrett: America’s Supreme Court

    Amy Coney Barrett’s confirmation marks the first time since the 1930s the court has leaned so conservative, and has stoked another partisan battle that may further reshape the court. Following the announcement of water on the Moon, we look at a looming, broader battle: who will own the water rights? And why Australia’s aboriginal flag is flying less and less.

    Coming write-up: Chile votes to overhaul its constitution

    Coming write-up: Chile votes to overhaul its constitution

    The country has roundly rejected its dictatorship-era charter and mapped out how to fashion a new one. What do Chileans stand to gain—and to lose? Rising populations of the elderly in the world’s prisons are creating deepening problems, both for jailers and the jailed. And we explore a theory that blames political chaos on too many would-be elites.

    Checks and Balance: What Don’s done

    Checks and Balance: What Don’s done

    “Promises made, promises kept” is one of President Trump’s campaign slogans. His main achievements on tax, deregulation, or appointing new judges would be hallmarks of any Republican administration. How has Donald Trump changed the country in ways no other president would have? What will linger even if he loses?  


    Adam Roberts, The Economist’s Midwest correspondent, looks at the president’s record on immigration. Trade and globalisation editor Soumaya Keynes tells us how effective Trump’s trade policy has been. And healthcare correspondent Slavea Chankova assesses his response to covid-19. 


    John Prideaux, The Economist's US editor, hosts with New York bureau chief Charlotte Howard, and Jon Fasman, Washington correspondent.

Biased not balanced. Partisan leftist nonsense.

Warning: you need to fact check everything you hear on this podcast. There is such a heavy bias, most reports are full of lies and innuendo. Presents a hard left-leaning bias peddled to Americans with British accents combined with the occasional American liberal voice.

Gets most issues WRONG, especially economic predictions.

Economist China reporters have lost their independence and they spread CCP lies and propaganda, such as calling the USA racist, ironic coming from the two most racist nations in history, China and England.

Economist USA reporters are clones of DNC media, no separation from the other declining USA news organizations.

Why don’t you just fire your USA hating reporters and just run CCP and DNC press releases, then you could make more profits.

Economist is at its best when reporting worldwide stories from diverse sources.

Please spare us your sniveling biased opinions, your whining and your rants.

Does The Economist intentionally try to insult hundreds of millions of Trump supporters regularly or is it just your thickheaded arrogance showing?

Citizens of the United States declared their independence and freedom from England over 200 years ago. We don’t need British media and accents to lecture us about our political systems and other matters.

Prepare yourselves for Trump’s re-election.
