John Authers, as investment editor for the Financial Times, served for several years as its main commentator on international markets. In this role, he became one of the world’s most influential financial journalists, writing its influential Short View and Long View columns five days each week. As this book went to press, he took over as the head of the Financial Times’ flagship Lex column.
During a 20-year career with the paper, based in London, New York, and Mexico City, Authers has won many awards, particularly for his work on investment and for his coverage of the credit crisis. This is his second book. He lives in New York, with his wife Sara Silver, also a financial journalist, and their three children.
