Former Economics Students (A Continuing Series)

According to The Financial Times, Nick Denton, founder of the now defunct Gawker, studied philosophy, politics and economics at Oxford before landing a job at Economist Books.

His father is an economist whose “big cause was federal Europe.”

Denton considers himself a libertarian.



  1. He's some kind of spook or at least an activist who has very deep connections.

  2. Having commented regularly in the greater gawkerverse I can certainly say there is nothing libertarian going on there. It's very hostile to libertarian thought. Which of course made it an interesting place to develop and fine tune my arguments, but libertarian it's not. Not the articles or the general readership.

    Oddly just before the dawn of the univision take over, my account was banished into a super pending where nobody but me could see my comments for most of the sites I frequented.
