Bloomberg Opinion has hired New York Times economics reporter Eduardo Porter to be a columnist.
He has been an economics reporter for the Times for the past four years.
He previously wrote the “Economic Scene” column for the New York Times for six years. He was a member of The Times’ editorial board, where he wrote about business, economics and other matters.
Porter began his career in journalism more than two decades ago as a financial reporter for Notimex, a Mexican news agency, in Mexico City. He was deployed as a correspondent to Tokyo and London, and in 1996 he moved to São Paulo, Brazil, as editor of América Economía, a business magazine.
In 2000, Porter went to work at The Wall Street Journal in Los Angeles to cover the growing Hispanic population. He joined The Times in 2004 to cover economics.
