The Economist for Free? Only in the Workers’ Paradise

Yesterday a friend of mine was telling me about a chinese website where the economist was translated each week by an army of Chinese volunteers. One of them subscribes to the magazine, and then the rest of them translate and put the translation online for free:

关于我们 ECO中文网创建于2006年,是《经济学人》爱好者的家园,凝聚了世界各地的华人力量翻译每期《经济学人》的精彩文章。《经济学人》最早于1843年9月由詹姆士·威尔逊创办,以独立和全球化的视角著称。创办的目的是“参与一场推动前进的智慧与阻碍我们进步的胆怯无知之间的较量”。

Translation:

About Us: The “ECO” Chinese language website was established in 2006, it is <The Economist> magazine’s hobbyists homeland, made up through the power of Chinese people all over the world translating every issue of The Economist’s brilliant articles. The Economist was founded in September 1843 by James Wilson, and has stood alone with it’s pro globalization prospective. The economist was founded to take part in “a severe contest between intelligence, which presses forward, and an unworthy, timid ignorance obstructing our progress”.

Kind of funny to watch the Chinese Black Market “economically” handling distribution for The Economist. See it for yourself: www.ecocn.org.
