Niranjan Rajadhyaksha of Mint (and a good friend of IEB) meets Bill Emmott, the former editor of the Economist for a drink. An interesting conversation evolves on the rise of Asia, journalism, and the reasons for the success of the Economist.
For those of you who haven’t picked up Mint yet, I would strongly recommend it. Mint is easily the finest newspaper in the country today, business or otherwise, and the only one you can actually read and enjoy without having to be on the lookout for outrageous errors. Too bad they haven’t figured a way for those of us living outside Delhi and Bombay to read it daily, without having to trawl the online version.
