Soumaya Keynes

The Financial Times has launched “The Economics Show with Soumaya Keynes,” a new podcast focused on big global economic topics.

Episodes will dissect questions in both macro and microeconomics, combining smart nerdery with real-world relevance. Examples include “Where is the global economy headed?” with the FT’s chief economics commentator Martin Wolf, “Is pay transparency good?” with FT columnist and associate editor Pilita Clark, and “Where are interest rates headed?” with FT economics commentator Chris Giles.

Planned high-profile guests include Emily Oster talking about the economics of parenting, Neel Kashkari of the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis speaking about US monetary policy, and Nobel laureate Angus Deaton on what is wrong with economics.

“There’s nothing I love more than diving deep into the toughest economics questions of the day” said Keynes in a statement. “I think this will be the perfect format to complement and elevate the FT’s economics coverage.”

In 2020 Keynes won an award for comment from the Society for Advancing Business Editing and Writing. She previously co-founded the “Trade Talks” podcast and co-hosted The Economist’s “Money Talks” podcast.
