"Felix Salmon represents the last bastion of old-school journalism, combining intellectual curiosity, a breadth of knowledge, and, crucially, razor-like intuition." -- Nassim Nicholas Taleb, author of The Black Swan

"Like its author, this take on our post-pandemic world is wise, witty, and filled with unexpected observations about our portfolios, our politics, our homes, and our hearts. The best part--you'll come away feeling more optimistic about the world that Covid has wrought."
-- Rana Foroohar, Financial Times columnist, CNN analyst, and author of Homecoming: The Path to Prosperity in a Post-Global World

"A refreshing, thoughtful, and witty look into what's changed and what's ahead, The Phoenix Economy explores a lot more than economics and finance. It rightly warns that we live in a more unpredictable world and that 'the unexpected isn't over.' Whether you are a policymaker, corporate leader, investor, or student, this is an important read." -- Mohamed A El-Erian, president of Queens' College, Cambridge, and author of When Markets Collide

"Felix Salmon is the Daniel Defoe of our time, reminding us of what we lived through during the Covid-19 pandemic and telling us how the world will change as a result." -- Joseph E. Stiglitz, recipient of the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences (2001)

"Felix Salmon is the rarest trifecta--thinker, reporter, storyteller. From lobster rolls to Etch A Sketch, The Phoenix Economy is your witty, knowing field guide to our new normal." -- Mike Allen, cofounder of Axios
