The Economist will be in ecstasy this week...

... they may finally have some competition. This, surely, is the culmination of the Economist's entire mission... perhaps they'll close down, content that competition has at last arrived to the sleepy world of weekly business newspapers.

What about Business Week? :)

http://www.businessweek.com/

I know what you mean though, they do sit in a genre mostly of their own, at least in the UK.

I've never been particularly impressed by Business Week. It always struck me as quite lightweight and flimsy (in both senses).

Perhaps I should buy it this week, along with the Business and see how they stack up.

Fair enough. I'm not sure I've ever actually read it :) It just seemed to me that Business Week feel into the category of... ahem... weekly business papers. Anyway, I'll cut the sarcasm and go do something useful.
