Arjun Ramani recently began an internship at The Economist in its Business Affairs Department, funded by the Marjorie Deane Financial Journalism Foundation. He writes:
On my first day at The Economist, I found myself in exciting editorial meetings where writers presented and defended story ideas called leaders to the rest of the editorial staff. Such meetings capture the essence of what drew me to the newspaper: a culture of open debate where academic curiosity and witty language collide.
Before The Economist, I studied economics & computer science at Stanford University. I also worked in financial markets at Citadel and on policy at the White House Council of Economic Advisers. In my free time, I enjoy book clubs, travelling to new cities and playing basketball.
I am grateful to the Marjorie Deane Financial Journalism Foundation for providing me the opportunity to learn from the wonderful team at The Economist.
