New Anonymous Blog on the Economist

I am happy to see that the Economist has a blog, Free Exchange.  Like the magazine, it seems to have sound free market analysis (and regular content). I still can’t figure out why the Economist strips journalists of the right to have names when they hire them.

Question: how much would a media outlet have to pay you to lose your byline?

Of course, in technical writing, I don’t have my name on many  things I produce either. Partially that is by choice.  I would hardly call myself an expert on the things I write about or have a personal investment in the content.  But even technical books have authors and a long list of reviewers and editors.
