FT’s Greeley to enter PhD program at Princeton
Brendan Greeley of the Financial Times will enter the doctoral program in history at Princeton University this fall.
He is currently on book leave writing a history of the dollar for the past 500 years.
He was promoted to U.S. economics editor at the Financial Times in 2019 after working at FT Alphaville. He previously covered the intersection of politics and the economy for Bloomberg News in New York.
In 2012, he received a New York Press Club award for special events reporting for a Bloomberg Businessweek cover story, “Why Bin Laden Lost.” He has written cover features on the Pentagon’s response to the Ebola epidemic, how to sell soccer cleats, the reinsurance industry since Sept. 11 and Paul Krugman’s Twitter fight with the President of Estonia.
Previously, Greeley was a technology and policy correspondent at The Economist. Greeley also launched, edited, and contributed to the publication’s Babbage blog.
