This app offers a selection of articles and forecasts from The World in 2013 print edition. It also includes video interviews with some of the contributors and from half a dozen cities around the world. And it assembles snapshots of people, events and data to watch in 2013. It offers a glimpse of things that will happen in the next 12 months.
The World in 2013, the latest in The Economist’s annual collection of predictions, identifies and explores the issues that will shape the year ahead. With a mixture of analysis with wit, journalists from The Economist join luminaries from the worlds of politics, business and science in offering forecasts for 2013, a year that will be particularly important for America’s fiscal future, for China’s new leadership and for Europe’s efforts to emerge from crisis. Triskaidekaphobiacs (those who fear the number 13) will have much to worry about, but everyone will smile on March 20th—the first official international happiness day.
