Financial Times columnist John Dizard has left the news organization after 21 years.

He wrote a weekly column for the Financial Times called Street Talk which covers global macro investing, the political economy of currencies, energy, commodities, emerging market debt, the international and domestic credit markets, the automation of securities exchanges, and Iraqi economics and finance.

Dizard has also written for The New York Post, The New York Observer, National Review, Fortune magazine, Institutional Investor, Fortune, Forbes, Barrons, and the New York Journal of Commerce. Previously, he was the London bureau chief of Institutional Investor, a correspondent for the Canadian Broadcasting Corp., and the managing editor of Canadian Business Magazine.

While at Forbes, he exposed the existence of a secret uranium cartel that fixed prices, and the story led to a successful antitrust suit against the cartel.

Dizard attended Georgetown University and Tufts University and studied political economy at the University of Saskatchewan, where he wrote a thesis on the European nonferrous metals cartel.
