Harper’s Adds Business Column

Harper’s is adding a business column to its pages. “The Anti-Economist” — penned by Jeff Madrick — is the first business commentary column in the magazine’s history. Madrick is a former economics columnist for The New York Times and an author of several books.

“These days, reporting on and demystifying economic news is one of the most important responsibilities journalists have to their readers,” said Harper’s editor-in-chief, Ellen Rosenbush, in a statement to The New York Observer.

Madrick’s first piece appears in Harper’s October issue.
