Description

Quartz is your guide to the global economy. We cover the most important and interesting news, with a focus on how businesses and industries are changing.

The main experience of our app is a continually updated news briefing written by our journalists around the world, along with insights from our reporters and members. It's free to read. If you want, we'll also send you notifications throughout the day that keep you informed without being annoying. (They don't even buzz your phone.) Our goal is to help you understand how the world is changing, while respecting your time.

You can also become a member of Quartz to add your own insights to our coverage and enjoy member-exclusive coverage throughout the app. Quartz membership requires an additional purchase.

Let us know what you think at hi@qz.com. Thanks!
