Newsletter Recommendations

Hi all, I am currently on the hunt for some nice newsletters for my email. I ran into "Big" by Matt Stoller on here and I really enjoy it. I guess I am looking for something in a similiar enomonic, political, or macro vein, science works as well. Any and all recommendations are welcome.

    I highly recommend Matt Levine's "Money Stuff" newsletter (link to today's): https://www.bloomberg.com/opinion/articles/2019-07-17/facebook-s-crypto-annoys-everyone

    He usually sends it out every weekday morning, and it's mostly finance/business-oriented. I really like his writing style—he writes in a very conversational manner, and does a really good job of explaining complicated topics. I occasionally skip over some sections when he gets a little too deep into the weeds on some finance topics for my taste, but overall it's excellent. There's always a little collection of random links to articles at the bottom of each one too, and I almost always find at least one or two of those enjoyable as extra reads as well.

      oh wow, you were right about that conversational manner! His style makes somewhat dry topics feel like a light read. I love the footnotes. Thanks for this.

    Colin Wright's Let's Know Things newsletter is pretty good I find - a small curated list of interesting articles about a wide variety of subjects. I don't usually read them all, just the ones I'm interested in, but there's never been an email without at least one article on a subject I'm curious about. Well worth your time!

    I've been a happy subscriber to the browser (paid) for quite a while now. Daily set of links to wide-ranging articles.

    Recently I added the prepared, about logistics and manufacturing. I'm not in the field, but looking past the job listing it often has interesting links about how the world of stuff and tech actually works.
