App Description

The World in app now includes both The Economist's annual collection of predictions for 2015 and a free download of The World if, a new publication from The Economist, that explores the longer-term scenarios that could shape the future of business, politics, and technology.

In The World in 2015, prominent figures from politics, business, science and the arts join journalists from The Economist and other leading publications in offering forecasts for the year ahead.

In The World if journalists from The Economist and well known external contributors look further out than just the year ahead to examine scenarios such as the world if Russia breaks up, the world if the yuan competes with the dollar and the world if autonomous vehicles rule the world.

This app offers free access to The World if as well as free access to a selection of articles from The World in 2015. Within the app you can also pay to access the full selection of articles and videos from The World in.
