经济学人适合谁读?它是老少咸宜,千人千面的内容:一本英文学习宝典,一本政经杂志,一本厕所读物,一本吹牛谈资,一本世界新闻,一本研究报告,一本书单推荐。


经济学人有着怎样的价值观?它有着这样的Mission Statement: The Economist was"First published in September 1843 to take part in 'a severe contest between intelligence, which presses forward, and an unworthy, timid ignorance obstructing our progress.'"(《经济学人》自1843年创刊起,就参与了一场前进的民智与阻挠它的无益胆怯的无知之间的斗争)


经济学人就是一本英语学习宝典:听——音频版,纯正的英音阅读;说——最新最热的政经话题(拒绝尬聊);读—— 雅思托福必备;写——拒绝死板长短句,想native speaker一样表达。

11.24 期好文推荐:Staying alive

推荐理由:Why suicide is falling around the world, and how to bring the numbers down further still.“You know,” says a trader in “Margin Call”, a film about the crash of 2008, as he stands high on a building above Wall Street, “the feeling that people experience when they stand on the edge like this isn’t the fear of falling—it’s the fear that they might jump.” Suicide fascinates us. It is at once appalling and yet, in the darkest places in our minds, appealing. It is the most damaging sort of death. A child’s suicide is a parent’s worst nightmare, and a parent’s marks their children for life. It is a manifestation not just of individual anguish but also of a collective failure: if society is too painful to live in, perhaps we are all culpable.

经济学人最终能给你带来什么呢?6字而已: 语言,视野,认知。
