Getting the band back together

I’m a big fan of two-handed blogs: there aren’t very any of them, but the ones that there are tend to be fabulous. (Think 2 Blowhards, or About Last Night, or Ultimi Barbarorum, or, of course, Marginal Revolution.)’s Curious Capitalist blog started off as a one-hander, written by the great polymath Justin Fox (whose book, if you haven’t read it, can be bought here), but it really came into its own when Justin brought in Barbara Kiviat to co-blog with him.

The blog is still going strong, under the auspices of Stephen Gandel and his colleagues, but I miss the old days, and so it gives me an enormous amount of pleasure to be able to say that I’ve managed to persuade both Justin and Barbara to guest-blog here over the next couple of weeks while I swan around South Africa.

Neither of them really has time to do this: Barbara has a huge course load in her new life as a grad student, while Justin is in charge of a monster editorial operation not only at Harvard Business Review but also at its book-publishing arm as well. I’m hoping that, like most bloggers, they’ll take this opportunity to blog as a form of procrastination while putting off their real work.

Many thanks to Justin and Barbara for doing this! I can’t wait to see what they come up with.
