EDITING AND CONSULTING

Paul's skills as an editor are well-honed. He combines deep knowledge of economics, business and finance, together with long experience in writing about such subjects for wide audiences. As a Brookings fellow, he often assisted colleagues in re-shaping and polishing op-ed articles on a variety of subjects, and his editing work on the book Reimagining Japan (see below) established his professional bona fides. He has also drafted and written major reports for clients. To request his services, either as an editor or freelance writer, please contact him directly.
