WE ASK: What was your favourite thing about back-to-school?


“The sub­tle shift in weather por­tend­ing the in­deli­ble sense of things chang­ing,” says so­cial colum­nist and pop cul­ture de­coder Shi­nan Go­vani. His most re­cent tute­lage: a wine course, about which he says, “I learned how to prop­erly swirl and sniff!” A reg­u­lar con­trib­u­tor to Zoomer, in this is­sue he muses on an icon’s grace­ful exit for “A Win­tour’s Tale” (pg. 54) and cruises an­cient atolls for “Greek Isle Idyll” (pg. 76).

Af­ter grad­u­ate stud­ies “many years ago,” econ­o­mist and Fi­nan­cial Post colum­nist An­drew Al­len­tuck has gone back to school a few times, but as a lec­turer – his un­equiv­o­cal pref­er­ence to that of scholar. His new­est book, Cher­ished For­tune: Make Your Wealth Your Busi­ness, which he co-wrote will be pub­lished later this year. In “Trade War” (pg. 58), he ex­am­ines tar­iff tu­mult and how to pro­tect your pock­et­book.
