Zvi is a 1 of 1. His coverage of Covid-19 helped me think more clearly about the nature of knowledge and expertise. I've also enjoyed his new explorations into regulatory politics (ie this post about the dredge act of 1906 https://thezvi.substack.com/p/repeal-the-foreign-dredge-act-of)
An original deep thinker on China and technology, consistently brings timely and unique perspectives on a similar issue set to what I cover on ChinaTalk
following china there's so much that's a downer but Faster, Please!? comes at similar topics to what I cover with such energy and positivity! It's informative and infectious.
Adam Tooze is a modern marvel. His range and insightfulness across that range is inspiring and near incomprehensible. I've learned more from him about how to think about global trends, second order effects, and interactions across politics, economics, and society than any other modern thinker.
I've spent 25 years living in nyc, and could not get invested in local politics until I started reading Ross' newsletter. He's a fantastic reporter and analyst whose left-wing views push me to question my assumptions.
Deep coverage of microelectronics with the occasional fascinating dive into East Asian economic history. A big fan of the youtube channel as well!
Noah is one of the best in the game. He's really unparallelled in his ability to deep dive into econ and econ-adjacent questions. We explore similar themes around industry policy and technological progress. About once a month he puts out a really strong piece on China and, having previously lived in the country, is particularly good on Japan.
