Who we are

We are an organisation that exists to drive progress. That's the “red thread” that connects everyone at The Economist Group (TEG). Our businesses share a devotion to innovation, independence and rigour in their fields of expertise. We empower people to understand and tackle the critical challenges and changes facing the world. Our analytical rigour, global expertise and evidence-based insights enable individuals and organisations to make sense of these shifts and chart a course through them.

Our story began in 1843, when a Scottish hat manufacturer founded The Economist newspaper to further the cause of free trade. Since then, we have evolved into a staunchly independent global media and information-services company that provides intelligent thinking for an international audience. We deliver our analysis and insights in many formats to subscribers and clients in 170 countries with four businesses, each of which upholds our global reputation for excellence... and integrity.

Through rigorous reporting, in-depth analysis and global perspective, The Economist explains today’s most important events and seeks to discern the trends that will shape tomorrow. At the core of everything we do is our independence, underpinned by our editorial culture and governance structure.

With subscribers in more than 170 countries, The Economist is one of the most widely recognised and well-read current affairs publications in the world. In addition to the weekly print and digital editions and Economist.com, The Economist publishes Espresso, a daily news app; World in Brief, a daily news and analysis digest updated around the clock; numerous newsletters and podcasts including The Intelligence, our daily news podcast.
