Globe and Mail hires Alini as personal finance reporter
The (Toronto) Globe and Mail has hired Erica Alini as a personal finance reporter.
She will start later this month.
Alini got her start in journalism with gigs at Foreign Policy magazine, the AP and the Wall Street Journal, where she helped chronicle the Great Recession from New York.
In Canada, Alini worked at Maclean’s for three years, where she turned the magazine’s Econowatch blog into a popular reader’s guide to anything from the housing market to income inequality. She was also a regular scribe for Canadian Business magazine, covering U.S. politics and policy and their impact north of the border.
In 2014, Alini joined the Christian Science Monitor in Boston as an international business editor, managing a team of 20 foreign correspondents and over 200 stringers spread across four continents.
