The audience would be the adherents of The Economist, people who would like a cultural enlightenment etc. The intended reader’s background would be average high income, with a long or medium educational background. The Economist isn’t afraid that they will scare off average readers (a fear which has destroyed once-decent magazines like Newsweek and Time).
With that said, the text has others parameters which make more appealing for a cultural audience fx historical references, statistics. The reason for using these methods, it’s because to make the article more authentic and to persuade its readers. If we look at this quotation:
