Some good news for you, amid all the other news: Annie Lowrey is joining us as a writer. She’ll focus on covering economic policy, principally with Becca and the Biz team. You’ll know Annie from her great work at The New York Times, New York mag, Slate, and elsewhere. I know she’s excited to be coming to The Atlantic now and working with everyone here. Annie lives in Washington, and she’ll be among us at the Watergate starting next week, so look forward to that.
