The Fiscal Times Rolls Out A Print Edition

After 11 months as an online-only financial and political news outlet, The Fiscal Times is diversifying by launching its first annual print edition today.  The debut of The Fiscal Times magazine will offer readers an overview of the new year’s economic agenda and its effect on policy making.  According to an official press release, the inaugural issue will also feature articles on economic growth opportunities, the current state of Congress, the core drivers of federal spending, and an essay on global interdependence written by President Bill Clinton.

TFT editor-in-chief Jacqueline Leo discussed the benefits of offering her magazine’s content through a variety of outlets.

We are delighted to introduce our first print magazine.  We believe that media consumers want content in multiple formats, on multiple platforms and that this mixed media model meets those expectations.

The Fiscal Times magazine will include contributions and commentary from a wide array of columnists, bloggers, and experts including Washington Post reporter John Berry, FOX News’s Liz Peek, and The Wall Street Journal’s Tom Herman.

Top Design: FBLA Goes to the Party


FBLA is wildly excited about Bravo’s Top Design series, especially as architect Andrea Keller is a contestant. We know her from our other life, and thus are completely biased and hope she wins. In the weeks ahead, she’s going to share some tiny, insignificant behind-the-scenes details with FBLA

Keller and her architect husband, John Berry, threw a viewing party last night. Among the crowd cheering for Andrea were author/film editor Paul Seydor, fellow contestant Heather Ashton, FOX money guy turned education guru Gene Straub, L.A. Phil fundraiser Janneke Straub and <a href=", and songstress Leslie Spencer Smith.

Keller’s a member of the blakkbox group who were out in full force (and thought that Keller being teamed with Ryan “My Own Worst Enemy” Humphrey was pretty funny), as well as architect Jeffrey Allsbrook and energy visionary Dan Emmett.

The crowd ate tamales and drank mojitos while the designers painted and pushed furniture around. FBLA always Tivo’s through this part, anyway. Loved the Robert Kuo pepper.
