The Economist is an English-language weekly newspaper owned by the Economist Group and edited in offices in London. Continuous publication began under founder James Wilson in September 1843. For historical reasons, The Economist refers to itself as a newspaper, but each print edition appears on small glossy paper like a news magazine.
