I am the American Finance Editor of the Economist, Tom Easton, and have been a correspondent in Japan, China and much of the rest of Asia. Ask me anything.
I began my career as a well-known writer for the very few readers of an unknown weekly publication. Now the reverse is true: I am unknown writer for the many readers of a well-known weekly publication. I think of my job as covering capitalism.
