An Amazing Piece

It’s an example of some of the new directions we’re going at TPM, doubling down on but also branching out from our core focus on high-speed, iterative coverage of politics.

This piece “Why Do Poor People ‘Waste’ Money on Luxury Goods?” by Tressie McMillan Cottom, which we published on Friday, has been one of the most popular pieces on TPM in all of 2013. I really recommend it to you.
