>Fareed Zakaria provides analysis and insight unlike all others. His articles and essays are favorites of mine. The price of Newsweek for his commentary alone is worth it.
I am less familiar with David Ignatius, but as Dr. Zakaria (he has a Ph.D in Political Science from Harvard) has partnered himself with David to host the PostGlobal blog website, I am sure that David’s musing are just as insightful.
Make sure and check out Dr. Zakaria’s articles and his article archive. “Does the Future Belong to China?” essay is one of my favorites, and I use it in my World Geography every semester.
