From 1996 to 1998, I wrote about power - politics, media
and business - for Chicago magazine.
Sadly, the magazine updated its site and deep-sixed my old links,
so I'll have to rescan my
columns and articles from that period and post them myself.
For now, "The Seven Golden Rules of
the Favor Economy" is a primer on how things really work in
Chicago - in fact, it's used in a course
at the University of Chicago Graduate School of Business. The
rest of the articles here are all
somehow related to politics and/or social issues.
