A review of Bloomberg Businessweek Magazine, May 7, 2013
Submitted by: TD from St Louis, MO
I have suscribed to every Business and Personal Finance mag available at one time or another and have found the layout of this magazine the most confusing of all. Articles start in the middle of the page and end halfway through the second column of the following page, Article titles are so small in print that it becomes a chore to quickly skim the mag for interesting content. I find that I usually miss an interesting article or two on my first glance simple because of the confounded layout. Truely strange ... will not renew.

High quality business journalism

The editorial quality is much better than the Wall Street Journal, and rivals the Economist and Financial Times for business reporting.

For me, magazine contents are all over the landscape -- fragmented. It is as if someone has culled pieces of articles and pasted them into Bloomberg Businessweek.
I had expected a magazine focused on economic, investment, and political issues/commentary. My fault for not looking at a copy at my local library before
For me, attention would need to be addressed to establish focus and provide content which is more developed. Perhaps the idea is a vehicle like The Economist
with focus on business -- economy.
Objective, balanced and unbaised
A review of Bloomberg Businessweek Magazine, July 11, 2011
Submitted by: 15yr-Businessweek Reader
A subscriber for over 15 years, Businessweek has always impressed me with its balanced, unbiased and objective reporting. One would expect a highly pro-business point of view and anti-anything that is anti-business sentiment but this is clearly not the case. It reports what the issues are, and delves deeply into the background to provide a more profound understanding of the topic. Sadly, this kind of publication is not fully appreciated as most readers prefer reading publications that cater to the extremes. An excellent publication and highly recommended.

I think the articles in this magazine are well-thought and provide evidentary proof for their positions. My only request is for the magazine to be delivered in some type of protective covering. The mail service has repeatedly delivered the magazine with at least half of the cover ripped off.
Useful tool for business awarenss
A review of Bloomberg Businessweek Magazine, December 21, 2010
Submitted by: College Student from Flint, MI
The information provided in the Bloomberg Businessweek will be very beneficial in aiding me to be more aware of what is going on in the business world and markets. I have not been a very savy individual in the past years until I had difficulty with income and balancing finances. I plan to start a business in the next 2 years and this review will be an essential tool to help me prepare myself for what is to come.
A review of Bloomberg Businessweek Magazine, September 7, 2010
Submitted by: A Solitary Voice of Reason from AZ
Businessweek is one of the most balanced, unbiased and well-written periodicals in the market. I've been a subscriber for almost 20 years and I am always amazed how the editors manage to gingerly toe the middle-ground on very divisive and controversial issues. I can rely on Businessweek to present both sides of an issue and as a result understand the complexities involved in decision making from various points of views, i.e., political, diplomatic, economic, socio-economic or military. In today's world where extremism has taken the place of honest and open-minded debate, Businessweek remains one of the last bastions of reason and maturity. I'm happy that Businessweek survives in this turbulent world - without it and others like it - our society is doomed to fail. For our democracy to endure and survive, we all need to migrate to the middle and acquiesce for the good of the whole.
Solid business mag / good artiles.

Boring, very simple articles mostly focused at a tactical level vs a strategic approach to issues. I will not renew. Money, Forbes and Fortune are far better.

New format accompanied by downgrade of former quality
A review of Bloomberg Businessweek Magazine, February 8, 2008
Submitted by: KDoh from NYC, NY
This used to be a solid informative business publication. However, coincident with its new format, the quality seems to have suffered enormously. In addition, there appears to have been a new slant toward sensationalism that I do not associate with past issues. For example, a recent cover screams "Meltdown: For Housing, The Worst is Yet to Come". The quality of the accompanying article is not up-to-par with past articles. For instance, it uses a quote about "macaroni and cheese" that makes little sense. Mac & cheese may be boring if you eat it every night but the quote instead argues that it somehow "doesn't leave room for anything else." Happily, the newly formatted BW leaves plenty of room for top flight business journalism like that found in the Economist, the Wall Street Journal, and others.
excellent business magazine
A review of Bloomberg Businessweek Magazine, December 17, 2007
Submitted by: groaner from paterson, nj
As a weekly, Businessweek is timely -- unlike Fortune where I have often read the admittedly well-written stories two or three times before they make it into Fortune's pages.
Businessweek takes a critical view of business and its role in society, often warning about the dangers of growing income gaps, for instance.
But the magazine is often uncritical of business leaders, praising them one year and blaming them for company failures the next -- part of the media's tendency to lionize individuals as the expense of better analysis. But it's my favorite end of week reading.
Business Week comment

In the recently revised format, I recommend resumption of weekly (multiple) articles on governmental policy and legislation.
This is a so-so business mag.

The new BW format is not to my liking. I think it looks like one big advertisement, rather than articles. I don't plan to renew.

Why I continue to renew Business Week Magazine
A review of Bloomberg Businessweek Magazine, July 19, 2007
Submitted by: m-tee from Denver, CO
I have read Business Week since my junior year in college or approximately 42 years. Most of the time I have renewed through Student Magazines. I have subscribe to other business publication. I find Business Week removes the sensationalism of the daily publications and helps me keep trends in business in perspectives. I also enjoy how Business Weeks integrates current events with the effect on business. I generally disagree with pointed editorials. If you are looking for a comprehensive business oriented magazine, you probably won't find a better choice.
Great Business Magazine
A review of Bloomberg Businessweek Magazine, July 12, 2007
Submitted by: Berkeley Engineer
This is a great magazine, I have subscribed to it since my junior year in high school. There is a good blend of economics, politics and straight up business news. While the Wall Street Journal is great if you want every nitty gritty detail Business Week does a great job of finding the most relevant information and presenting it is a logical fashion.
