The Interview Issue

Brevity may be the soul of wit—but it’s pretty cruel to depth. In a season defined by 140-character commentary, our first-ever Interview Issue allows leaders in business, politics, economics, and finance the luxury of complete sentences. Alan Greenspan eases into memories of his saxophone-playing days. Bob Iger gives us a private tour of a Disney park. Bob Nardelli and others tell tales about Jack Welch. Whether in sit-down interviews, subway ride-alongs, or Mad Libs, all of our 46 subjects reveal something about themselves, and all do it in their own words.

Before it's here, it's on the Bloomberg Terminal.
