Deeper insights into The Economist’s journalism

For decades, The Economist’s end-of-year double issue has gone a little beyond our typical weekly offering. Hidden in its pages, readers find a carefully curated selection of longform essays, personal stories, penetrating investigations and lighthearted commentary.

We will showcase the best of the Christmas issue here on Medium, publishing some of the most memorable essays from our archive alongside new pieces from this year’s edition. Our Correspondents’ Notebooks will give personal insights from our writers on the stories behind their stories, while our Photo Essays will feature the pictures they took in tailor-made multimedia pieces — exclusive to Medium.

The full articles will all be published on economist.com.

From August to November 2016 our spotlight on Medium was on the American election.
