Back from London

Posted by: Michael Mandel on April 27

Just came back from London where I was attending the Business Journalist of the Year Awards. I had a fun time—I got to dress up in a tux, exchange stories with my tablemates (Gillian Tett and Tim Harford of the FT, and Edward Hadas and Simon Nixon of, and best of all I was named “Best Economics Journalist.” Not bad for a two day trip.

Congrats Michael!!

Definitely seems to be worth a two day trip across the pon.

I just wish we blogreaders would get to enjoy some of that top notch journalism a bit more ;)

Ah well, I guess I just need to read BW more :)
