Bank Battles

Dan Fitzpatrick of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette offers a wonderful example of explanatory business reporting with this week's "BankTown USA" series. Fitzpatrick shows how Charlotte, N.C., passed by Pittsburgh to become the second city of U.S. banking. I like how Fitzpatrick describes the people, laws and business strategies that helped Charlotte rise and how he dissects the consequences for Pittsburgh. I don't usually find stories about banking easy to understand or fun to read, but Fitzpatrick's writing kept me engaged.
