An event examining global economic coverage by the business press will be held in New York on Tuesday morning.

The event, called “Are we Being Served?” will be held at the New York Law School, 185 West Broadway, and begin at 8:30 a.m.

It will explore how the global financial press interprets these crucial developments around the world for its audience, and ask what drives the American media to cover the international economy the way it does.

The speakers include:

  • Heidi Moore, the U.S. finance and economics editor for The Guardian. Formerly, Heidi was New York bureau chief and Wall Street correspondent for Marketplace, from American Public Media.
  • Kevin J. Delaney, editor in chief and co-founder of Quartz, the new global business site from Atlantic Media. Kevin was a reporter at The Wall Street Journal for a decade, working in Paris and Silicon Valley, before returning to New York to become managing editor of WSJ.com.
  • Edmund Lee, reporter for Bloomberg News in New York. Edmund covers the media industry. He’s written for The New York Times, the Daily News, New York, The Village Voice, Women’s Wear Daily, Portfolio, Advertising Age and Bloomberg News.

The event is sponsored by Capital New York and the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants. To reserve your spot, go here.
