It’s a pleasure to announce that Edmund L. Andrews, who just left the New York Times after a long and distinguished career as a business and economics correspondent, has joined Capital Gains and Games.
Ed’s posts will begin on January 4, but many of you already know his writing because you’ve been reading his reports for decades. During his more than 20 years with the Times, Ed covered everything from the Internet and biotech revolutions to the emergence of capitalism in central Europe and Russia and the Federal Reserve under Alan Greenspan and Ben Bernanke.
Or you may know Ed because of his frequent television and radio appearances including the NewsHour with Jim Lehrer, Today, 20/20, All Things Considered, Lou Dobbs on CNN, the Colbert Report, BBC Worldwide, MSNBC, and CNBC.
(Note to Ed: Can you introduce Andrew, Bruce, Pete, Troy, and me to the Colbert producers?)
Ed began his affiliation with The Times in 1988 when he covered patents, telecommunications, and technology. In 1992, he joined The Times’ Washington bureau as a domestic correspondent and reported extensively on the business and politics surrounding the convergence of cable television, the Internet, and broadband digital networks. In 1996, Ed became The Times’ European economics correspondent and its Frankfurt bureau chief. He returned to Washington in 2002 and became that bureau’s lead economics correspondent and The Times’ main eyes and ears on the Fed.
You may also know Ed from the excellent book he published in 2009 -- BUSTED: Life Inside the Great Mortgage Meltdown (WW Norton) – his extremely personal account of the financial crisis that generated a great deal of interest and some controversy. As I said here back in June, this book is both fascinating and scary and, most important, well worth your time.
Please join me in welcoming Ed to the CG&G family. We’re lucky and exceptionally pleased to have him with us.
