Join us for a conversation with one of Britain’s most influential journalists and commentators, hosted by Lowy Institute Executive Director Michael Fullilove. The Economist is a truly global newspaper and this conversation will range across the entire globe: What have we learned from the pandemic about the state of globalisation? Has the US-China rivalry now become a fully fledged cold war? Is America too wounded to be the “leader of the free world”?
Zanny Minton Beddoes is the Editor-in-Chief of The Economist. Previously she was the business affairs editor, economics editor and The Economist’s emerging-markets correspondent. Ms Minton Beddoes joined the newspaper in 1994 after spending two years as an economist at the International Monetary Fund (IMF), where she worked on macroeconomic adjustment programs in Africa and the transition economies of Eastern Europe. Before joining the IMF, she worked as an adviser to the minister of finance in Poland.
