DealBook 2017Stephen Hiltner of the New York Times interviewed Andrew Ross Sorkin about why the newspaper’s DealBook is shifting its coverage.

Here is an excerpt:

The Times recently relaunched DealBook, the daily financial report that you started back in 2001. What’s new? What kinds of changes can DealBook readers expect?

We’re expanding our mandate to become a smartly curated, one-stop shop for all the day’s key business and policy news and analysis in real time.

The business world is now inextricably linked with policy — in Washington, in Brussels, in Beijing — in a way that it has never been before. Corporate C.E.O.s and investors increasingly spend as much time in D.C. as they do on Wall Street. Business has become politics. And politics is business.

That’s why we’re relaunching DealBook with a renewed focus on the intersection of these crosscurrents, leveraging the entire reporting staff of The New York Times for our deeply loyal reader base of influential business and policy leaders and an expanding global audience.

We’re going to be touching on everything from lobbying to technology to taxes to automation’s impact on jobs to the business community’s approach to climate change.

Our goal is to bring readers unique insights and exclusive behind-the-scenes details about the day’s most important headlines. And of course, we will continue to cover the world of deal making and finance.
