Covering Globalization: A Handbook for Reporters

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

DOZENS OF PEOPLE contributed to this book in many different ways. The idea of the book grew out of a Web site that a number of people have written for and supported. Nicholas Rosen, Trend Gabrielsen, and Sara Silver were the first writers on the site; Alejandro Bianchi and Peter Green came on soon after. Alex Fishman did the first postings. Deidre Sheehan did a fantastic job of editing the texts on the Web site and so helped improve the pieces that are in this book. Jane Folpe did a typically thorough job of research, and I am very grateful to Susan Schneider for her editing and Dao Thu Hien for the job she did on researching the book. Shari Spiegel, Anton Korinek, Kim Andreassen, and Shana Hofstetter all worked on various aspects of administering and designing the Web site. The Open Society Institute and the Ford Foundation funded the project, so special thanks are due to Butch Montes, Laura Silber, and George Soros. Chrystia Freeland, Mark Clifford, Abid Aslam, Darren McDermott, Roman Frydman, Grainne McCarthy, Anne Nelson, Sheridan Prasso, Tim Carrington, and Graham Watts were among the first people to understand my idea and encourage me to pursue it. Frydman helped with marketing the site, as did Tim Karr. The site itself came out of conversations with reporters in countries as diverse as Argentina, Bolivia, Ecuador, Bulgaria, Moldova, Uruguay, and Vietnam. A number of people in those countries (and others) gave me help and ideas including My Ha Nguyen, Fang Wang, Mary Campbell, Monica Almeida, Petko Shishkov, and Tanja Jakobi.

Terri Thompson is the director of the Knight-Bagehot Fellowship at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism, where I learned an enormous amount about what makes a successful business/economics journalism program and a great deal from the experience of fellow journalists such as John Authers and Kim Allers. Much of what I know formally about economics and finance came from studying with Mary Ellen Carter, Graciana del Castillo, Ann Harrison, Hugh Patrick, and Matt Rhodes Kropf at Columbia University. My editors at Dow Jones Newswires and at the Asian Wall Street journal gave me the chance to write about economics and business: John Hitchcock gave me my first full-time job as a business reporter and sent me to Amsterdam and Hanoi for five years. Once I got there, Michael Bergmeijer, George Thomas, Rod Alvarez, Kambiz Foroobhar, Roger Malone, Rob Fischer, David Plott, Aki Sato, and Reginald Chua urged me on. Samantha Marshall and Jesse Pesta taught me an enormous amount about good business writing. At the Industry Standard, Jane Goldman, Jim Ledbetter, Thomas Goetz, Rich Turner, and Jonathan Weber were wonderful bosses; Megan Barnett, Matt Yeomans, Hugh Garvey, Greg Dalton, Bill Brazell, and Susan Orenstein were terrific colleagues; and Kevin Kelleher was a tireless editor and
