James Surowiecki blogs
Sunday, November 2nd, 2008
I start each week’s New Yorker with James Surowiecki’s columns. So I’m thrilled (and a little daunted) to discover that he’s now posting multiple entries a day on his New Yorker blog.
Here’s a great post about the mediocre Nikkei. I’m so glad that didn’t end up on the cutting room floor in some editor’s office.
But beyond getting to read more of Surowiecki’s rational masterpieces, the blog is disquieting, revealing that in addition to writing brilliantly Surowiecki is also confused, and probably owns more stock than he’d like to admit. (To himself or to his wife?) There’s a recurring barely suppressed cry of “Fix it!”
