In 1972, Livingston left the Bulletin for The Philadelphia Inquirer, where he continued writing his economics columns and co-wrote a regular chess column. His decades as a financial writer were honored in 1974 by the first Gerald Loeb Memorial Award. He wrote a 5-part series of columns in 1975 entitled "The Second Battle of Great Britain" on the country's economic difficulties that earned him both the 1975 Bache Halsey Stuart Award from the Overseas Press Club and the 1976 Gerald Loeb award for Columns/Editorial In 1981, Livingston spent more than five weeks in Britain interviewing government officials, bankers, businessmen, labor leaders, workers, and members of Parliament for a five-part series entitled "English Lessons for America" that compared the U.S. and British economies and earned him the 1981 Overseas Press Club award for Best Business News Reporting from Abroad.


A 1970 column reporting on his six-week investigation into Howard Butcher and suspicious transactions involving Penn Central stock earned Livingston the 1971 Gerald Loeb award for newspapers. While still writing for the Bulletin, Livingston taught an economics class ("Seminar on Contemporary Economic Trends") at Temple University in 1971 and 1972.


Livingston contributed the "Business Page" feature on WCAU radio's Evening Edition from 1962 to 1964.


In 1961, Livingston recorded the miniseries The Evolution of the American Economic Revolution for the Voice of America.


Livingston's book, The American Stockholder, was published in 1958. The book discusses the role of stockholders, finding that the average stockholder plays an insignificant role.


Livingston served as the president of The Franklin Inn Club in 1955. He helped organize the Society of American Business Editors and Writers (SABEW), serving two terms as its first president in 1964 and 1965.


Livingston was hired by The Philadelphia Bulletin in 1948 to be their financial editor. In 1964, he visited Yugoslavia, Poland, Bulgaria, and Czechoslovakia to research the prospects of trade between the U.S. and Eastern Bloc countries. He toured factories and interviewed government officials at all levels. His research resulted in a six-part series entitled "The Powerful Pull of the Dollar" that earned him the 1965 Pulitzer Prize for International Reporting. He stepped down as financial editor in 1968 to focus on outside writing, but continued as an economics columnist.


When the Record closed in 1947, Livingston moved to The Washington Post, where he started writing his semi-weekly "Minding Your Business" column. The column was renamed "Business Outlook" after a few months and was nationally syndicated later in the year, eventually being printed in over 70 newspapers. He continued writing the syndicated column for the rest of his life.


After the war, Livingston joined The Philadelphia Record in 1945 as the financial editor. The following year, he began sending a detailed questionnaire to economists around the U.S. asking for their forecasts of several economic variables for the next six, twelve, and eighteen months. He conducted the survey, which came to be known as the Livingston Survey, every six months for the rest of his life. In 1978, the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia digitized Livingston's historical data to make it available to researchers. The Bank took over conducting the survey after his death in 1989. The survey is the longest continuous record of economists expectations.


Livingston put his journalism career on hold in 1942 to work as an economist for the U.S. government during World War II. He worked for the War Production Board to help start War Progress, an internal weekly report distributed among the various war agencies. The reports were noted for Livingston's use of his story charts to concisely deliver information. He served as editor for the publication and became the economic assistant to Chief of Operations Hiland G. Batchellor. In 1944, Livingston wrote a public affairs pamphlet entitled "Reconversion – the Job Ahead" and assisted in the production of two of the Board's "Critical Programs" reports. He transferred to the Office of War Mobilization and Reconversion in 1945 to help compile analytical and statistical reports for the government.

Their daughter, Patricia, was born in 1942. She graduated from Westtown School and Middlebury College, and received her master's degree from the University of Pennsylvania. In 1967, she married Mathew Herban III. She received her PhD in English from the University of Pennsylvania in 1973.


In 1935, Livingston joined Business Week as an editor and economist. He wrote "The Trend" and "Business Outlook" columns until his departure in 1942. During his tenure, he developed his "story chart" technique, which used charts to dramatically and quickly convey economic information. He extracted the real story from the data, then presented it in a way that the chart and captions clearly expressed everything that was part of the real story and nothing else.


Livingston resumed investing his investment club's money in 1932 and 1933. The club's portfolio finally became profitable in 1935. His friends, not wanting to press their luck, decided to cash-out and dissolve the club. Livingston and his wife used their proceeds to purchase a farm in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. After the war, they lived in Philadelphia, then returned to Washington, D.C., in 1947. In 1948, they finally settled on their farm in Bucks County while maintaining an apartment in Center City, Philadelphia.


Livingston joined the New York Daily Investment News, rising to executive editor in 1931, and wrote the "Talking It Over" column. In 1934, he moved to Financial World to be the public utility editor.


In September 1929, Livingston began an investment club with some of his university friends, which quickly became underwater when the Great Crash shook the stock market a month later. He realized his university education was insufficient for making informed investment decisions, so he took night classes at the City College of New York from 1929 to 1931 to study investing, accounting, statistics, and economic history. Armed with new knowledge, he repeatedly begged his editor to move him from general reporting to financial reporting until he was eventually fired.


The couple initially lived in the Bronx. Rosalie joined an insurance company in 1928 as an editorial writer, and worked as an editor for Young Dancer magazine in the 1930s. They lived in the New York City area until 1942, when they moved to the Washington, D.C., area.


Livingston returned to New York City to begin his journalism career as a cub reporter for the Brooklyn Eagle. By late 1927, he was a staff reporter at The Brooklyn Daily Times. In the second half of the 1920s, he also worked at the Queens County News, The Bronx Home News, and Fairchild's Daily News Record.
