Gideon Rachman

Gideon Rachman is chief foreign affairs commentator for the Financial Times. Based in London, Gideon translates his extensive travels and his remarkable access to world leaders into an insider’s view of global events. He speaks authoritatively about economics, politics, and globalisation as they apply to Asia, Europe, the Middle East, the Americas, and more. At the FT, Gideon writes a weekly column on international politics as well as feature articles. He has reported for the FT from all over the world. Before joining the FT in 2006, he worked for The Economist for 15 years in a range of jobs, including as a foreign correspondent in Brussels, Bangkok and Washington, and as business editor. His book Zero-Sum World, about the future of international relations, was published in the UK in late 2010. The New York Times called it “perhaps the best one-volume account now available of the huge post-communist spread of personal freedom and economic prosperity.” The Independent called it “an important timely book that should be obligatory reading for all interested in what is happening beyond our shores.”
