Colby Smith joins The Economist as a Marjorie Deane intern

Last month Colby Smith joined The Economist’s New York bureau as a Marjorie Deane intern supported by the foundation. She has already had articles published in The Economist as an intern, including one about the rise of meal kits for this week’s issue.

Having worked on The World in 2018 last autumn, it is an absolute privilege to write for The Economist again. I am deeply grateful to the Marjorie Deane Financial Journalism Foundation for the opportunity to continue learning from such talented writers and editors.

Prior to joining The Economist, I worked at Bloomberg Television for three years covering business, economics and financial news as a producer for the flagship morning show “Bloomberg Surveillance” with Tom Keene, and later, the network’s closing bell programme. I completed an MPhil in International Relations at the University of Cambridge and I completed my undergraduate degree at Brown University. At Cambridge I helped to produce the podcast Talking Politics with Professor David Runciman, who each week sat down with a panel of dons, policymakers, authors and philosophers to discuss global politics.
