Linkage always was and will always be The Basis Point handpicking links for you. We don’t automate anything we link to or discuss. Everything is handpicked based on core themes we and you care about most — which are money, homes, tech, work, life. This summer we’re building a faster model for handpicking and streaming Linkage as we redesign the entire site, but today I’m reverting back to this old school Linkage post format to log a months-high pile (mostly from Economist stories I’ve torn out) before I clear my desk. I’m guessing many of you will appreciate a lot of these core themes for 2021. Hit me direct or comment below with questions.
