Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The economist is like any other news media, people buy it more to have their prejudices reinforced than to be more widely informed. Thus this article falls nicely into that niche.

Of course, it is worrying that a magazine which is widely read amongst the political elite is really just a neoliberal propaganda unit but, ultimately, this says more about the general cluelessness of the people who read it than it does about the industry it describes.
