The wit of The Economist

I'm a big fan of The Economist as a foil to the hopelessly biased, provincial papers in Australia. Their clipped, accurate prose and quality proofreading make it a joy to read.

They're also not above slipping in the odd pointed barb, in their dry style of humour. I particularly like this one:
The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, a Paris-based think-tank for rich countries

Pointed barbs like that would have bigwigs at a stuffy organisation like the OECD spluttering into their brandies. Subtle and understated. I love it!
