I paid over times five the price I would have paid if I had chosen USA while subscribing for the Economist.
So how will I get the magazine here in Nigeria if I pick USA during subscription? I use a mail forwarding service from www.myus.com that will receive all the magazines on my behalf and ship to me here in Nigeria. And in other to reduce my shipping cost, I will have them consolidate the magazines for an entire month before asking them to ship to me, that way I get to pay a much smaller fee per magazine. Next month will be my first shipment month since the first issue of the magazines take 4 - 8 weeks to arrive, I will check the calculations then to see if I haven't made a foolish decision.
