Edward Luce is one of the Financial Times’ most popular writers and “one of the finest journalists of our time.” A U.K. native, Oxford graduate, and former speechwriter for Treasury Secretary Larry Summers, he is highly regarded by policymakers, leaders, and political junkies for his insider/outsider insights on American politics and his cross-border perspectives on geopolitics and economics.
In his speeches, Luce helps organizations understand how political and economic changes and global trends will impact their operations and decision-making.
His topics include:
- The Crisis of Western Democracy
- The Future of Work
- The Rise of Global Politics
His latest book, The Retreat of Western Liberalism, examines the weakening of western hegemony, the erosion of the middle class, and the future of liberal democracy. He is also the author of Time to Start Thinking: America in the Age of Descent and In Spite of the Gods: The Rise of Modern India.
At the FT, Luce is the chief U.S. columnist and commentator and has served as Washington bureau chief, Capital Markets editor, and South Asia bureau chief. With FTcolleague Rana Foroohar, Luce also writes “Swamp Notes: Money and Power in Trumps’ America,” a weekly newsletter including curated content and personal stories.
