I’m Neil Irwin, and I wrote a book about how to have a successful career in the modern economy (and also write about lots of other fun economic topics at the New York Times). AMA!
I’ve spent years studying how people can navigate a successful career in the turbulent twenty-first century economy, and put what I found in my new book, “How to Win in a Winner-Take-All World.” For the book, I visited some of the biggest and most successful companies in the world (Microsoft, Goldman Sachs, Walmart, many more) and examined what it takes to thrive at the large organizations that are the superstar firms of our age. And in my day job, I am a senior economic correspondent for the New York Times, so if you’d like to talk about anything else economic-y, I’m game for that too!
Update: Thanks everyone for the great questions! Hope you find my answers helpful!
