Financial Times launches new commentary section
The Financial Times has launched a new commentary section called the A-List that will feature high-profile columnists such as former Treasury secretary Larry Summers.
An item on the FT’s website states, “Starting on Monday June 13, the FT A-List will publish exclusive and original daily comment from its network of globally renowned leaders, policymakers and commentators. Topics will range from economics and finance to world politics and diplomacy, with the headline commentary accompanied by at least one response from a related expert.
“To mark the launch Lawrence H. Summers will write the first of a series of monthly columns appearing in the FT addressing the crisis of America’s jobless recovery. Nouriel Roubini will then launch the A-List commentary addressing the eurozone’s prospects. Readers will be able to participate in the debate and comment online.
“The A-List includes financier and philanthropist George Soros, chief executive of Pimco Mohamed El-Erian, chairman of Goldman Sachs Asset Management Jim O’Neill, political scientist Francis Fukuyama, professor of politics Anne-Marie Slaughter and former EU trade commissioner Peter Mandelson.”
