The New Yorker‘s new online hub for business coverage and commentary, The Business Pages, launches today on newyorker.com. Scotch drinkers might especially like a story about the Bruichladdich distillery in Islay, Scotland.
Weekly features on the site include:
- “The Idea of the Week,” an infographic visualization of an important business or financial issue.
- “The Number,” a deep dive into an economic indicator, data point, or other figure that best captures what’s happening that week.
- A video series hosted by James Surowiecki, tied to his column in the magazine, The Financial Page.
- “How Do They Make Money?,” a series that asks how different people make their livings—from street musicians to shoeshine men to fishermen.
- The hub will also provide links to classic New Yorker stories about business.
It will feature business content from the magazine, as well as original Web content from these writers:
- Malcolm Gladwell
- James Surowiecki
- John Cassidy
- Amy Davidson
- Ken Auletta
- Tim Wu
- And many others.
