Bhu Srinivasan writes about economics, history and statecraft.

Bhu Srinivasan's first book, AMERICANA: A 400-Year History of American Capitalism, explores the intersections of democracy and capitalism. The Economist selected it as one of its Best Books of 2017.

He is currently working on adapting his book to television, identifying the next big things, and outlining his next book. is distributed twice weekly; Tuesday and Thursday
