If The New York Times is writing about you, you’re making a difference.
That’s what a friend in the liberty movement told me after The New York Times ran a story about Talent Market last week.
To the surprise of many, The Times described Talent Market in ways we can’t help but take as compliments:
- “Clients say Talent Market excels at finding hard-to-attract…staff members and at time-consuming searches for senior officials. But its greatest value may be in connecting far-flung organizations with talent they might not otherwise find.”
- “In many ways, [Talent Market] is the casting director for the…liberty movement.”
And my favorite:
- “…the visible hand for those who worship the invisible hand.”
Wow. That line almost feels like a group hug with The New York Times, Adam Smith, and Talent Market. Did I just enter an alternate universe?
Our only complaint was that Jon Caldara, our friend and President of the Independence Institute, got the lead photo. I mean, he’s jaw-droppingly handsome and all, but what about the folks who work at, um, Talent Market? To paraphrase a friend, including photos of the all-female staff at Talent Market would have blown the image of the male-dominated right wingers that The New York Times’ readers have come to know and love. Good point.
