The World in 2016: Insights & Predictions on Politics, Business & Finance

By The Economist

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


The World in 2016, 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 2016. Leaders of three of the world’s biggest emerging markets—China, India and Nigeria—outline their priorities for the coming year; the head of the IMF identifies the actions needed for the world economy; the world’s youngest Nobel peace-prize winner argues for a focus on girls’ education; and the inventor of the world wide web points to the issues that will matter for the future of the digital revolution.

Articles cover everything from the American elections to Britain’s in-or-out referendum on the European Union, from clearing up the ocean to visiting Jupiter, from religion to cybercrime, and from the Olympics in Rio to cricket’s T20 World Cup in India. To mark our 30th edition, we include a special section on different ways of looking at the future, with views from a famous novelist, a renowned trend-spotter, a champion of “superforecasting” and even an astrologer.

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: Malala Yusafzai, Nobel peace-prize winner; Narendra Modi, prime minister of India; Li Keqiang, prime minister of China; Muhammadu Buhari, president of Nigeria; Christine Lagarde, managing director of the IMF; Roger Goodell, the NFL’s commissioner; Travis Kalanick, CEO of Uber; and Tim Berners-Lee, inventor of the world wide web.

Looking Forward

The Economist once again sets a standard of excellence with the world in. My only grievance is a want more! I love the break down by region and topic so that by the time you reach the end, you feel you have been left with the imprint of what to look for around the world in the coming year.

Great content, confusing execution

More thoughtful, excellent reporting from Economist on a wide range of interesting topics. But getting started with the app was confusing, had some tech trouble. Why make this an entire separate app and not just a special issue?

Why isn't it integrated with my e-account?

Seriously. How can you not integrate this app with my account? Why do I need a "voucher" which I emailed you about to get and never received a reply. Either my subscription entitles me to this issue or not. I should just be able to use my web account credentials to log in and retrieve my issue. Get with it and get the single account login going.
