New York—The Economist has added a new blog covering sports to its website. Called Game Theory, the blog will examine sports through the lens of politics, economics, science and statistics. “This new blog lets our journalists share their passion for sports more widely and extends our distinctive analytical approach into a new field,” Tom Standage, digital editor of The Economist, said in a statement.
Economist.com now has 22 blogs. It has added two others this year: Leviathan, which covers public policy, and Clausewitz, which covers diplomacy and defense.
