The Economist says Greece is headed for its 8th magazine cover in the last 5 years

The cover of The Economist often captures the zeitgeist on what the world’s big geopolitical or economic event is.

Unlike The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, or another “paper of record,” The Economist is published just once a week, and when you’ve made the cover of the magazine, you have become an event.

In a post on Sunday, The Economist said that Greece looks headed towards making its 8th magazine cover in the last 5 years as it increasingly looks like Greece will default on its debt and potentially make its way out of the euro.

The magazine also included the last 7 times Greece was featured on its cover: here’s what happened then.
