"What is the world like in 2013? It's a great question, and The Economist has a few answers. Each year, this publication publishes a guide to the trends and quandaries that will consume the attention of policy-makers, politicians, concerned citizens, and others across the globe. The materials here include political analyses, technology reports, and commentaries on culture. The pieces here are divided into sections that include Leaders, Britain, Europe, Asia, China, and numerous others. Visitors can look through each area for commentaries with titles like "Pakistan and Bangladesh make history," "Manufacturing the future," and "Vermeer via Bowie." The Latest Blog Posts area contains updates on everything from tea in Sierra Leone to the political milieu of the Czech Republic. Additionally, visitors shouldn't miss the Multimedia area for up-to-date reports on these topics."
