Featured Authors

Marc Levinson’s seven books include The Box, a modern classic that explores how a seemingly mundane innovation, the steel shipping container, made globalization possible, and An Extraordinary Time, which examines how the end of the post-war boom around 1973 led to an era of anxiety, uncertainty, and political extremism that is still with us today. He was formerly finance and economics editor of The Economist in London, developed environmental and social investment research for a New York bank and served as a fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations. He lives in Washington, DC.
