About Me..

I am often on the move and here is what I read :

  • On paper:
    The Economist, The Financial Times, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The New Yorker, Foreign Affairs
  • Online/Kindle:
    Reuters (of course), BreakingViews (now also Reuters), Wall Street Journal, Media ReDef, Quartz, TechCrunch, The Information; Le Figaro, Le Monde
    • Books:
      Almost only fiction, for the time being on paper (thank God):Anything by Roth, Rushdie, Saramago, Camus, Mahfouz, Mann, Dostoevsky, Helprin, Marquez, Houellebecq. By the way, if you want a view of how Reuters deals with globalization, see pages 16-21 in Tom Friedman’s book The World is Flat. For a great non-fiction read from the greatest living newspaper editor, try My Paper Chase by Harry Evans
