NY Times biz reporter Popper to write book about GameStop trading frenzy
New York Times business reporter Nathaniel Popper has signed a contract to write a book about the GameStop trading frenzy.
The book, tentatively called “Power Shift,” is expected to be published in Spring 2022.
It will be published by Dey Street Books, a unit of Harper Collins.
The book will be told from the perspectives of old-guard hedge funds, social media influences, and the hordes of digitally native young traders, along with the tech founders whose apps made the “big long” possible.
Popper writes about technology and finance for the Times. He is the author of “Digital Gold: Bitcoin and the Inside Story of the Misfits and Millionaires Trying to Reinvent Money.”
He has been with the Times since March 2012 and previously was with the Los Angeles Times.
