Summary

And you definitely don’t want to go down a path where writing about an industry or a government or a part of the world is limited to people who have previously spent time in those places.On the other hand, Levine most definitely brings his time at Goldman, which he spent making and selling complicated financial instruments, to bear in “Money Stuff.” It’s a dryly hilarious daily newsletter much loved by people who work on Wall Street and people who like reading about Wall Street.For starters, Levine says, his Wall Street knowledge still gives him a leg up when he talks to people who are still on Wall Street. Then they’re like, ‘Okay, you’re okay.’”Maybe more important, though, is the initial idea that Levine had when he started writing about Wall Street: He thought the people who were writing about Wall Street at the time didn’t really get Wall Street.The main thing was [something] I think a lot of people who work on Wall Street feel. But I was there, and I was thinking there’s more nuance.The people who work there are people, and they’re interested in things, and they’re not just doing stuff like, “Ah, let’s get the money and defraud people.” For me, we were building stuff that we thought was interesting or doing interesting stuff.
