Prior to joining The New Republic, Kahn spent seven years as a writer at Fortune magazine in New York, where he covered a range of domestic and international topics.

He covered political strife in Venezuela and journeyed to Iraq to report on U.S. efforts at economic reconstruction.

Kahn was twice named one of America's 30 top financial journalists under the age of 30 by the trade publication TJFR. His story for The Atlantic on witness intimidation in Baltimore was given a Sidney Award by New York Times columnist David Brooks for being one of the best magazine stories of 2007 and will be included in a forthcoming anthology of "The Best American Crime Writing 2008".

Prior to Fortune, Kahn interned at Newsweek, The Plain Dealer in Cleveland, and the Financial Times' Washington bureau. He holds a masters' degree in International Relations from the London School of Economics and a bachelor's degree in history from the University of Pennsylvania.
