"The Economist" font

This was available for sale about a year ago through a Company in the UK.  Recall it was seriously expensive and wonder if a) where I could find it and b) any cheap (free?) imitations available

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The Economist is available in the Agfa Creative Alliance. It was a OEM face originally created by Monotype for the magazine The Economist. The 8 weight text family sells for around $20 a weight in the US. Free imatations of text families are generally worth the price you pay, so I would recommend that you stick with a more credible solution from a reputable foundry.
