Timmy elsewhere

In the New York Times.

It’s always rather odd writing for a US newspaper. That short piece went back and forth 5 times I think for edits and approvals. And the point I really wanted to make (we don’t actually know whether wealth inequality is growing or not, as we don’t measure the things we do to reduce wealth inequality) wasn’t one they were interested in….

I note that Joe Stiglitz thinks differently but then that’s hardly a surprise.

  1. Make sure when writing as a Brit for a US publication to pepper the story with lots of pavements, safe harbours, suspenders, aeroplanes and, er, fannies, etc just to compound the peoples divided by a common language.
