Clive Crook is one of the world’s most respected economics journalists. As a commentator, his principal interest is political economy - the intersection of politics and economics.
For some 20 years, Mr. Crook guided the Economist magazine’s editorial line across its broadly defined economics terrain. As its deputy editor for 11 years, he supervised its full range of interests in business, politics and international relations.
He is the author of hundreds of articles, almost all of them unsigned (in the magazine’s tradition of anonymity), including many of the magazine’s most memorable and influential editorials.
As the Economist’s chief economics commentator, he wrote frequently on global trade, development and the economic role of government.
In 2004, Mr. Crook co-chaired the Copenhagen Consensus project, a gathering of Nobel laureates and other world renowned economists aimed at framing global development priorities for the coming decades.
Clive Crook is a columnist for the Financial Times, based in Washington DC. He also is senior editor at the Atlantic Monthly and a columnist for National Journal.
