Economic Outlook

Matthew Bishop, the American business editor and New York Bureau chief for The Economist, possesses a breadth of knowledge on financial trends that is second to none. A native of Great Britain, he was previously the magazine’s London-based business editor. With the enviable ability to clearly explain the historical context behind our current fiscal challenges and the steps the country should take to avoid a future collapse, Bishop has been praised as a rising star in the finance world and was named to the Power 100 List of executives who have made a difference in the finance industry. Frequently interviewed on media outlets like NPR, BBC, CNBC, MSNBC, and PBS, Matthew Bishop presents sharp analysis of the state of the global economy and a lucid and rational plan for future change. He is exclusively represented by Leading Authorities speakers bureau.

Acclaimed Authorships. Bishop is the co-author, with Michael Green, of The Road From Ruin: How to Revive Capitalism and Put America Back on Top, which rejects old orthodoxies and conventional wisdoms and sets an agenda for recovery that calls for a new, improved capitalism in the wake of the crash of 2008 and subsequent economic downturn. The New York Times described it as “provocative and refreshing,” and according to Yale University’s Professor Robert Shiller, The Road from Ruin will be “remembered as a serious, highly readable book of the broadest intellectual scope. Its insights will help all of us reshape the future and enable both citizen and policy maker alike to separate real reform from the grandstanding bluster so prevalent today.”

Bishop is also the author, again with Green, of Philanthrocapitalism, described as “terrific” by The New York Times and called “the definitive guide to a new generation of philanthropists who understand innovation and risk-taking and who will play a crucial part in solving the biggest problems facing the world,” by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg. According to former U.S. President Bill Clinton, “This is an important book. Our interdependent world is too unequal, unstable, and, because of climate change, unsustainable. We have to transform it into one of shared responsibilities, shared opportunities, and a shared sense of community. Bishop and Green show us how to do it.”

Bishop also wrote Economics A to Z, the official Economist layperson’s guide to economics and is the author of several of The Economist’s special report supplements, including most recently “The Great Mismatch,” about the future of jobs; “A Bigger World,” which examines the opportunities and challenges of the rise of emerging economies and firms; “The Business of Giving,” which looks at the industrial revolution taking place in philanthropy; “Kings of Capitalism,” an influential analysis of the private-equity industry; and “Capitalism and its Troubles,” an examination of the flaws in the financial system that led to the current crisis.

Prior to the Economist. Before joining The Economist, Matthew was on the faculty of London Business School, where he co-authored three books for Oxford University Press. He has served as a member of the Sykes Commission on the investment system in the 21st Century and was on the Advisors Group of the United Nations International Year of Microcredit 2005. He has been honored as a Young Global Leader by the World Economic Forum.
