Since the December 2018 edition of The Economist was published, I have received many emails with similar comments:
"Whatever the enigmatic symbols may mean, this cover is easy to decode if you are a proficient Mirror Reader."
Why? Because all the words in the cryptic image are reversed.
It's a challenge for some people to decipher, but not all.

Can you read what is written below the 2? (answer at bottom)
To check your accuracy, if you have a physical copy of the magazine, you can simply hold it up to a mirror.

Explore the Economist's website using the free MIRROR WEB APP or use the MIRROR BOOKMARK on this website.
Find out what your Web looks like in reverse.
It's no puzzle: Reverse Reading activates regions of the brain not associated with regular reading, notably areas of the right brain.
Practice makes cortex.

Answer - Below the 2: “New Horizons of Ultimate Thule”.
This refers to NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft getting close to the mysterious, distant object Ultima Thule on New Year’s Day.
