It's The Economist Stupid!
I just came across this article and video from The Atlantic about the state of the newsweekly industry. The writer, Michael Hirschorn, explains that The Economist saw it's advertising revenues increase 25% from last year where Time and Newsweek saw declines of 14% and 27% respectively.
The answer is quite simple - The Economist provides quality worldwide news and analysis. That's why people read it. This article is a must read.
Another interesting article about a future without the New York Times can be found here.
