The Journalist’s Resource project, which is based at Harvard’s Shorenstein Center, has published a very informative interview with Greg Ip, the U.S. economics editor for The Economist.

Based in Washington, D.C., Ip covers the economy, financial markets, monetary, fiscal and regulatory policy.

His interview, which is part of the Center’s “research chat” series is full of great tips, facts, redirections, basic info for both beginning business journalists and veterans alike. He offers ideas on errors to avoid, the best news outlets to follow, how to approach economic academics and interviewing techniques.
