The Curious Capitalist makes it into Keith Kelly
So there it is in Keith Kelly's column in today's New York Post, the news that this blog (which has probably had about 10 readers in the past month, since I 've had my head in a book and haven't been posting) is leaving Fortune.com (and CNNMoney.com) for Time.com. Kelly fails to mention that I'm also leaving Fortune magazine to write a weekly business and economics column (working title: "The Curious Capitalist") for Time. But hey, print's dead, right?
Actually, I sort of thought the latter news was more important, given that I've been writing this blog since September and I've been at Fortune for almost 11 years. Plus I'm told a few million people still read Time magazine. On paper!
Anyway, yes, this blog is moving to Time.com. (And I'm making the big, scary move today from the 15th floor of the Time & Life Building to the 24th.) The current plan is to maintain some ties with CNNMoney, but I'm not exactly sure how that's going to work or what my URL will be at Time.com. In any case, you can always find the blog at curiouscapitalist.com. Not that I'll be posting a lot before the week of Jan. 22. Still got that book to finish first.
You can't get something for nothing. Strong societies not only require a viable military force to protect them from external threats but also quality social programs for their internal stability. Both cost money and that's why there are taxes. Economies usually flourish when social programs succeed.
