The Best Business Writing 2013 (Columbia Journalism Review Books)


An anthology Malcolm Gladwell has referred to as "riveting and indispensable," The top company Writing is a far-ranging survey of business's dynamic courting with politics, tradition, and existence. This year's decisions contain John Markoff (New York Times) on suggestions in robotic expertise and the decline of the manufacturing unit employee; Evgeny Morozov (New Republic) at the questionable worth of the preferred TED convention sequence and the belief in the back of it; Paul Kiel (ProPublica) at the ripple results of the continued foreclosures challenge; and the notorious op-ed by way of Greg Smith, released within the New York Times, saying his holiday with Goldman Sachs over its buying and selling practices and corrupt company ethos.

Jessica Pressler (New York) delves into the non-public competition among Tory and Christopher Burch, former spouses now competing to dominate the style international. Peter Whoriskey (Washington Post) exposes the human fee of marketing prescribed drugs off-label. Charles Duhigg and David Barboza (New York Times) examine Apple's unethical hard work practices in China. Max Abelson (Bloomberg) stories on Wall Street's a laugh response to the diminishing annual bonus. Mina Kimes (Fortune) recounts the grisly tale of a company's unlawful testing―and misuse―of a clinical machine for revenue, and Jeff Tietz (Rolling Stone) composes essentially the most poignant and accomplished photographs of the monetary crisis's dissolution of the yank heart class.
