Shanghai will be my new home as I begin work at China Economic Review. This panorama is a view of The Bund and is actually two pictures Photoshopped together.

I’m excited to announce that today I begin work as a staff writer at China Economic Review. The whirlwind hiring process took less than a month and I couldn’t be happier with where I have landed. Stylistically, the magazine is largely in the same vein as The Economist — news analysis with a dash of wit. The job promises to bolster my critical thinking in regards to economic and business matters in China.

Also as a result of the job, I have left Beijing for Shanghai. Shanghai is a very different city from Beijing and that will come to light in my further posts.

I will continue to blog, hopefully with more regularity once I’m settled in to the new position. It is important I say that all views and opinions on this blog are my own and do not in any way reflect the stances of China Economic Review as an organization.

That said, look for a post this week about my trip to Yujiacun, the fascinating village in Hebei that I’ve written about once already. Until then, here’s an article from China.com that gives a good background on the town.
