Bono (of U2 and the One Campaign) and Jeffrey Sachs (of Columbia’s Earth Institute) are blogging for the Financial Times this week (on the occasion of the the Millennium Development Goals summit). Bono describes himself as the FT’s
roving reporter in the canyons of Manhattan. While the world upends on Wall Street, I’ll be mostly midtown at the UN and the Clinton Global Initiative talking about the resilience of the world’s poor while the world’s rich find out how fragile life can be.
Bono promises to blog about doing “judo in a suit” with McCain and Palin later this week (“judo in a suit” being Bono’s description of what happens in the meetings he has with world leaders and the like.)
