Mister Restall Update

Dow Jones is changing the format of its fifty-eight year old Far Eastern Economic Review from weekly to monthly, and former TDR Editor-in-Chief Hugo Restall will edit the reborn publication. An Austrian immagrant, Eric Halpern, founded it in 1946, with a mission “to analyze and interpret financial, commercial and industrial developments; collect economic news; and to present views and opinions with the intent to improve existing conditions.” Mr. Restall intends to continue down this course, claiming, “In important ways, this newest incarnation of the Review closely resembles the original publication launched in 1946.”
