Surowiecki to write column for Marker
James Surowiecki, who wrote The Financial Page for The New Yorker magazine, has been hired by online business publication Marker to write a regular column called “Money Talks.”
“Every other week he’ll be unearthing surprising trends in the economy, diving into untold business stories, and offering his incisive analysis of what’s really going on with companies,” writes Danielle Sacks, editor in chief of Marker, on Twitter.
Surowiecki also worked at Slate, where he wrote the Moneybox column. He has also been a contributing editor at Fortune and a staff writer at Talk. Previously, he was the business columnist for New York.
His book, “The Wisdom of Crowds: Why the Many Are Smarter than the Few and How Collective Wisdom Shapes Business, Economies, Societies, and Nations,” was published in 2004.
His anthology “Best Business Crime Writing of the Year” hit the shelves in 2002, in time to capitalize on the Enron scandal of the early 2000s
