John is the Head of The Economist Group’s Globalization, Trade and Finance practice. He is responsible for leading and developing the practice across different geographies and sectors, including both public and private organisations. As the global economy is being transformed by multiple forces including geopolitics, technological progress and climate change, the practice works with clients to navigate these structural shifts.
Most recently, as Director of Macroeconomics, he was responsible for guiding The EIU’s global economic analysis across 200 countries. Prior to this, he was Director of Country Analysis and Global Forecasting. As a trained economist, John has a breadth of research experience using econometrics, macroeconomic and political economy analysis. His research has covered many of the major factors impacting the global economy: climate change; geopolitics; FDI flows; artificial intelligence; and global employment patterns. John holds a Master’s degree in International Economics from Sussex University where he specialised in macroeconomics and trade, and an Honours degree in Psychology from the Australian National University.
