Fareed Zakaria’s Time Column Debuts

Fareed Zakaria has debuted the first entry for his new Time column. The magazine’s managing editor Richard Stengel introduces the column in his Letter to Readers:

Fareed is quite simply one of the foremost public intellectuals of our time. He does something that is rare: he connects the dots on foreign policy, politics, the economy and the larger culture to make sense of the world’s most important ideas and trends. And he does it with a subtlety that is nevertheless clear and accessible. For him, politics and international affairs are complex and gray, not black and white.

In his inaugural post, “The Real Challenge from China: Its People, Not Its Currency,” Zakaria takes a look on how China is investing in its people as the country “moves up the value chain.” This is the first column Zakaria has written for Time since leaving his post as editor of Newsweek International.

Also in this week’s issue, Joe Klein‘s cover story offers a look at what happens when a New York-based journalist criss-crosses the country to meet with “real” Americans in order to get a sense of what, exactly, is on people’s minds as we approach midterm elections. Klein’s 6,782-mile trek is also chronicled in daily entries on Time.com’s  Swampland blog.
