On March 1st, Rana Foroohar joined The Financial Times as its Global Business Columnist. A must-read for economic and political thought leaders, her weekly column provides insight on the shifts occurring in globalization and the political economy.
In her first FT column, “Trump’s trade policies won’t help my town,” Rana explains that the nature of globalization is “evolving into regionalization.” She also argues that a “legitimate debate about economic nationalism, at least in regards to things like trade and industrial policy, has been sidetracked by xenophobia.”
Her latest commentary, “The silver thread of technology that runs through future jobs,” addresses how America can bridge the skills gap in the new economy.
In addition to her role at the FT, Rana is CNN’s Global Economic Analyst, covering the intersection of business, economics, politics, and foreign affairs. She is a sought-after commentator on influential programs such as CNN's GPS, Face the Nation, and Morning Joe. Her first book, Makers and Takers: The Rise of Finance and the Fall of American Business, was a finalist for the 2016 FT & McKinsey Business Book of the Year Award.
