The World in 2015: Insights & Predictions on Politics, Business & Finance

By The Economist

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


The World in 2015, the latest in The Economist's annual collection of predictions, identifies and explores the issues that will shape the year ahead. Prominent figures from politics, business, science and the arts join journalists from The Economist and other leading publications in offering forecasts for 2015. Politicians such as Joko Widodo and Matteo Renzi outline their plans for reforms, Hillary Clinton focuses on closing the gender gap and David Blaine reassures us that magic can still amaze.

For much of 2015, the world’s divisions will draw the most attention. While some economies are moving ahead, others are in danger of slipping back into recession. Nationalism is on the rise even as the West argues over how to respond to a rogue Russia and rampant jihadists. But it’s not all gloom: sporting and speed records could be broken, cinema-goers will delight in a new Bond movie and a new Star Wars sequel, and NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft will give us a fleeting glimpse of Pluto.

The app offers free access to a small selection of articles; within the app you can pay to access the full selection of articles and video.

Contributors include:
American business magnate, Bill Gates; US Senator and First Lady, Hillary Clinton; Matteo Renzi, Prime Minister of Italy; Joko Widodo, President of Indonesia; world famous magician, David Blaine; investor and activist, Carl Icahn and Michelle Bachelet, President of Chile.

Customer Reviews

Good content; poor delivery

As always the content is good if not great but why do you need to put noting this cludgy App. For someone who LISTENS to every weekly edition of the economist in your App why not deliver it that way for subscribers. The Audio delivery / menus and access is terrible and gets in the way of consuming the content. Would also like to see 1.5x speed but that would be fixed if delivered via normal app.


Gives a lot of information on stuff I never knew and I really like it because it helps me with my homework

It's perfect

Gives a lot of information ☺️
