With Friends Like These, Who Needs Earthquakes?

My latest column is on the South Florida Sun-Sentinel site. It’s a few days old. I almost missed its publication, coming out of my book-writing haze. This column features an exclusive interview with Marsha Henry, an LSE lecturer who studied and visited Haiti prior to the earthquake. Consider it the first installment in a three-part Trading 8s series on the Haiti disaster. Tomorrow, Alex will give an engineering perspective on rebuilding Haiti, and I will conclude on Wednesday with an economics suggestion or two to fund Alex’s ideas. We hope you enjoy the whole series, beginning with this column.
