    Giorgia on my mind: Italy’s far-right government

    Giorgia on my mind: Italy’s far-right government

    Italians have voted decisively for a coalition of right-wing parties, with Giorgia Meloni, leader of the Brothers of Italy, the likely next prime minister. What this means for Italy, Europe and the war in Ukraine remains unclear. Latin American prisons are awful and getting worse. And a surprising hit film makes Chinese authorities nervous.

    Inflation nation: The Fed raises rates, again

    America’s Federal Reserve made its third straight 0.75% interest-rate hike, with Jerome Powell, the Fed’s chair, warning that more hikes would follow. But with inflation still high, and labour markets still tight, is the Fed doing all it can? A new report suggests that forced labour and marriage are on the rise around the world. And reflecting on one man’s long search for extraterrestrial life. For full access to print, digital and audio editions of The Economist, subscribe here www.economist.com/intelligenceoffer

    The 300,000 body problem: Russia mobilises and threatens

    This morning Vladimir Putin announced that Russia would call up more troops to fight in Ukraine, said his goal of “liberating” eastern Ukraine remained unchanged and accused the west of “nuclear blackmail.” Our correspondent parses his speech.

Jeddah is Saudi Arabia’s most charming and cosmopolitan city, which Saudi Arabia’s de facto ruler, Prince Muhammad bin Salman, is swiftly bulldozing.

    The first draft is history: Chile’s rejected constitution

    The first draft is history: Chile’s rejected constitution

    Two years in the making, the country’s new foundational document was summarily swatted down in a referendum. We ask how it went so wrong, and what comes next. Data show a long-held view on fertility and prosperity is not as straightforward as thought; we examine the policy implications. And learning about HARM—the missiles causing so much harm to Russian forces.

Great start to the day

I start every day with this Podcast. Well paced and informative covering expected and unexpected subjects. Thoughtful and intelligent presenters who give a measured viewpoint.

Armenian Strong ,

Terribly Biased

I just started the episode on the Armenia/Azerbaijan class and WOW I have never heard a more biased intro. Heavily favoring Azerbaijan and Turkey. Trying to pull on the heartstrings for a country that is causing the conflict. AND having a Turkish correspondent comment to open???? THIS is what’s wrong. Our small, and historical country has little chance against media like this. Just terrible. Do your real research.
