Adam Davidson, co-founder and host of NPR's "Planet Money" team, recently joined The New Yorker as a contributing writer for business, technology and economics. He previously wrote the "It's the Economy" column for The New York Times Magazine, helping readers make sense of the frustrating and murky waters of economics and finance. Davidson's talent for offering substantive economic reporting that is funny, engaging, and accessible to the non-expert has been recognized with many top awards, including a Peabody. Before joining Planet Money, he was the international business and economics correspondent for NPR and, prior to that, the Middle East correspondent for PRI’s Marketplace.
