I’m a fan. He was the editor of The Economist’s excellent “Economics Focus” for a good while. He may even have been nice enough to have been the person who decided to write up some of my work for the world.
Anyway he went off to Atlantic Monthly where I think he still writes substantial review pieces, and since 2007 he’s been writing columns for the Financial Times. Google Reader, everyone’s friend, just suggested I go visit his blog. Because the day only has 24 hours, I didn’t know of it. It is predictably good. It led me to this column on why the Democrats should choose Obama. It’s a good column.
