Economist’s Bishop moving back to London
Matthew Bishop, who has been with the Economist in New York for more than a decade, is moving back to London to join the publication’s editorial department, according to a spokeswoman.
Bishop has most recently been a senior editor. He creates content for and chairs some Economist events, among other things.
He has also been globalization editor in the New York bureau. Prior to this role, he was also U.S. business editor and New York bureau chief, and the London-based business editor.
Philanthrocapitalism, his 2008 book with Michael Green on the business of philanthropy, was described as “terrific” by the New York Times.
Bishop is the author of several of The Economist’s special report supplements, including The Great Mismatch, about the future of jobs; A Bigger World, which examines the opportunities and challenges of the rise of emerging economies and firms; The Business of Giving, which looks at the industrial revolution taking place in philanthropy; Kings of Capitalism, which anticipated and analyzed the boom in private equity; and Capitalism and its Troubles, an examination of the impact of problems such as the collapse of Enron.
Before joining The Economist, Bishop was on the faculty of London Business School, where he co-authored three books for Oxford University Press.
