The Washington Post has launched “Econ 101: Navigating the Economy,” a new line of coverage focusing on current financial themes affecting all Americans.
“The U.S. economy is experiencing shifts that many Americans have never experienced before. This content will demystify some of these driving forces and the impact they have on people’s finances,” said Damian Paletta, deputy business editor at The Post. “We are excited to expand on The Post’s in-depth coverage of the kitchen table issues at the intersection of finance.”
Using animations, the series explores timely topics including rising gas prices and housing costs. Two pieces are available now: a look at inflation and an exploration of what’s driving record-high gas prices.
Installments will continue rolling out on a quarterly basis through the end of the year.
