CP Pandya’s window on the corporate world

Some time ago I co-wrote a commentary with CP Pandya on the Venezuelan government’s economic policies. It was a useful piece because I was able to supply some historical context and some information about Venezuela itself, while CP was able to provide a view as a business observer. I believe it is a sign of our success that we managed to draw a rather hysterical, unintentionally ironic, and somewhat amusing critique from a member of the Venezuelan opposition.

CP’s work more generally provides analysis and insight on corporate doings and depredations, with information that only very close watchers of the business press have. Combined with a radical perspective, this is very useful, and I believe complementary to my own approach. As readers know by now, I spend very little time or energy reading the mainstream North American press — I use alternative and foreign sources and connections. But I value the insights of good mainstream press watchers, which is what most of the z bloggers and friends are. CP’s particular focus on the details of corporate dirt adds something to the picture, which is why I am glad to see that CP will be blogging here, in the new ‘Corporate World’ section opening up on the killing train.
