First published in 1843, The Economist serves no master save the liberal credo of open markets and individual freedom. Our independence is absolute; our mission to be an indispensable guide to world affairs. Watch our latest video to understand the values that lie at the heart of The Economist http://econ.st/1UJ5ISl
Economist Films is a new venture that expresses The Economist’s globally curious outlook in the form of short, mind-stretching documentaries.
“Future Works” is a series that examines the jobs of the future that are being done today. Our first film, “Drone Rangers”, chronicles the day-to-day work of civilian drone operators in the fields of conservation, disaster recovery and construction.
The second series, “Global Compass”, looks at the countries and people pioneering new approaches to persistent social problems. The first film is “Drugs: War or Store?”, a hard look at new kinds of drugs policy from Portugal to Colorado.
