Monocle's View From Nowhere
The content has a new seriousness, though it remains ever-optimistic. In an interview for the March issue, the CEO of Lufthansa says he is confident that globalization “cannot be stopped or slowed down, even though some people are trying hard.” The president of Portugal, adopting the vocabulary of a start-up founder, pitches his country as “a platform between cultures, civilizations, and seas.” (“We were an empire,” he reassures readers, “but not imperialistic.”)

工科生怎么看懂《经济学人》(The Economist)? - 金融 - 知乎
“国外有人做过统计,受过良好教育的英语母语人士词汇量普遍在30000左右,而且会随着年龄增长而不断提高。所以在积累词汇量的路上是永无止境的。我们的目标应该是追求更多。”

“一般词汇量在8000左右就可以开始读经济学人了。这里要说一下词汇量的问题,多大的词汇量才够用?我的理解是,越大越好。是的,两三万算凑合,四五万也不嫌多。”

“举个例子,刚才那段节选文章里有一句: The pre-modern marauders of Islamic State (IS) rampaged between Iraq and Syria, and Russian forces dismembered Ukraine, as if borders were elastic lines rather than fixed frontiers. 读到这里有没有一种“哇,写得真牛逼“的感觉?是的,最后一句的比喻写得太棒了,把国家的边界比喻成橡皮筋,可进可退,可伸可缩,借此来讽刺IS和俄罗斯随意入侵别国的行径。”

“关键是要找到适合自己的学习材料。理想的学习材料应该满足“i+1”的原则,即你的英语水平为i ,选取的阅读材料难度为”i+1”,阅读材料不能太简单也不能太难。”

Marco Arment's The Magazine and the economic case for content bundling.
So as The Magazine gets bigger, the same $1.99 a month fee buys you more content. It's a virtuous circle in which subscription growth drives a superior value proposition that drives more subscription growth. Of course as you scale up, you do hit some hiccups—eventually you need to add extra editorial staff and such—but it's pretty smooth sailing.
