Discountmags offers a discount lock. For the next year they will try and match this same deal and so far they've always been able to match sales for magazines I buy.

You can select something along the lines of auto lock which locks in the price on automatic renewal.

The Economist seems to get attacked often when it comes up on SD, so I will (basically) say the same thing I said last time.

All news outlets are biased. Perfect neutrality is impossible. My goal is to find the most objective news possible. Not objective, but the most objective (or the least biased). It's a relative comparison.

I have been reading The Economist for over three decades, subscribing for at least two decades. I like it because it has a wide, global coverage, whereas most English-language news outlets tend to be more US focused. The breadth is interesting, covering politics to book reviews to science, with plenty in between. The Economist has plenty of opinions but also presents a lot of FACTS, something that is sorely lacking in contemporary media.

When it does editorials, it brings decent intellectual heft to its analysis. You may disagree with its conclusions, but you can't fairly say that they are not reasoned.

Is The Economist biased? For sure. I'd say it's lefty on social issues and righty on economics. Libertarian, if you must. On many things, though, it is mostly centrist. It's actually more left that I'd like.

A better question, for those who dislike The Economist, is to offer an alternative. Is there another comprehensive, reputable news source that is MORE objective? Not one that simply agrees with your politics, but one that is a better source for journalism (as opposed to opinion). In all my decades of talking to people who criticize The Economist, I have yet to hear any good suggestions, or, hell, any suggestion.

I'm listening, and I'm willing to try.
The only way you can call it propaganda is if you have bought into a political perspective and The Economist provides content that doesn't fit your viewpoint. Doesn't mean it's propaganda. Could just mean you're poisoned by politics like so many.
Cheers to that. I read nearly every article on a weekly basis. In my opinion, The Economist has one of the, if not the best journalism in the world. It is worth every dollar, and is the only news subscription I pay for.

Call me old fashioned, but are they ever going to offer a discount on print-only?

Most of the subscriptions are either digital or digital+print these days. Print only sub is not an option for many of them anymore.

It's an old school pricing strategy. Their intention is never to have people subscribe to print only, but by offering it as an expensive option, they can get more people to subscribe to their more expensive combined subscription package

Yep and by doing so it actually enables them to continue even offering a print edition. Digital media subsidizing print media 👍

Used to love the economist and read almost every article on each issue. Now it has become a propoganda tool and no better than CNN. So disappointed.

"I used to read [insert publication here]. Now it has become [insert insult here]." I've seen comments like this about everything from Game Informer to Car & Driver and now The Economist.
