  • Search The Economist online
    Basic searches
    You can conduct basic searches at The Economist online with the search box at the top of each page.
    What can I search for?
    You can search for articles and content in four separate archives using the drop-down menu in the search box:
    • Economist.com, which contains all articles from The Economist newspaper since June 1997, as well as all web-only content. (This is the default search option.)
    • Print edition only, which contains all articles from The Economist newspaper since June 1997 and excludes all web-only content.
    • Economics A-Z, which enables you to search an electronic version of Matthew Bishop's Essential Economics.
    • The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) archive, which contains all publications from the EIU since January 1996.
    How does searching work?
    Searching for words and phrases
    Multiple search terms are automatically combined with the Boolean "AND" operator?i.e., all terms that you search for will appear in each of the results. You may also refine your searches with other Boolean operators.
    To search for a specific phrase, simply enclose it in quotation marks (e.g., "monetary union").
    To search for multiple variations of the same word, place an asterisk at the end of its stem. (A search for Europe*, for example, will return all results that contain the words "Europe", "European", "European Union" and so on.)
    Applying search fields and filters
    Our advanced search page enables you to conduct more refined searches by specifying search fields like date, headlines and index terms.
    Modifying search display options
    View your search results in reverse chronological order by selecting Sort by date at the top of the results page.
    View them according to how frequently your search terms appear by selecting Sort by relevance.
