Bio

Sebastian Mallaby is Paul A. Volcker senior fellow for international economics at the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). An experienced journalist and public speaker, Mallaby is also a contributing columnist for the Washington Post, where he previously served as a staff columnist and editorial board member. His interests cover a wide variety of domestic and international issues, including central banks, financial markets, the implications of the rise of newly emerging powers, and the intersection of economics and international relations. His writing has also appeared in the Atlantic and the Financial Times, where he spent two years as a contributing editor.

Mallaby is the author of The Man Who Knew: The Life & Times of Alan Greenspan, to be released in October 2016 following five years of research and unlimited access to the former Federal Reserve chairman. His previous book, More Money Than God: Hedge Funds and the Making of a New Elite, was described by New York Times columnist David Brooks as "superb"; it was the recipient of the 2011 Loeb Prize, a finalist in the Financial Times/Goldman Sachs prize, and a New York Times bestseller. Mallaby's earlier books are The World's Banker, a portrait of the World Bank under James Wolfensohn that was named as an "Editor's Choice" by the New York Times; and After Apartheid, which was named by the New York Times as a "Notable Book." An essay in the Financial Times said of The World's Banker, "Mallaby's book may well be the most hilarious depiction of a big organization and its controversial boss since Michael Lewis's Liar's Poker."

Before joining the Washington Post in 1999, Mallaby spent thirteen years with the Economist. While at the Economist, he worked in London, where he wrote about foreign policy and international finance; in Africa, where he covered Nelson Mandela's release and the collapse of apartheid; and in Japan, where he covered the breakdown of the country's political and economic consensus. Between 1997 and 1999, Mallaby was the Economist's Washington bureau chief and wrote the magazine's weekly Lexington column on American politics and foreign policy. He is a two-time Pulitzer Prize finalist: once for editorials on Darfur and once for a series on economic inequality. In 2015, he helped to found a startup, InFacts.org, a web publication making the fact-based case for Britain to remain in the European Union.

Mallaby was educated at Oxford, graduating in 1986 with a first class degree in modern history. After eighteen years in Washington, DC, he moved to London in 2014, where he lives with his wife, Zanny Minton Beddoes, editor in chief of the Economist.

The Man Who Knew: The Life and Times of Alan Greenspan

No post-war figure has loomed over global finance as imposingly as Alan Greenspan, America’s Fed chairman from the booming 1980s until the eve of the 2008 financial crash. And no figure has been more paradoxical: a man who preached the virtue of the gold standard, yet came to embody paper money; a man who posed as a dry technocrat, yet was political to his core. From his debut as an acolyte of the cultish libertarian novelist, Ayn Rand, through his controversial relationship with Richard Nixon and successive presidents, Greenspan was the ultimate Washington wise man, the quiet God in the machine. But when global finance melted down, Greenspan’s reputation melted with it.

Based on five years of untrammelled access to Greenspan, his papers, and his professional and personal intimates, this is the definitive study of the preeminent financial statesman of our times. Powered by fast-moving dialogue, it is at once a rags-to-riches story and a roller-coaster fable of fame acquired and lost. Throughout, it grapples with the central mystery that Greenspan’s life presents to us. Why did a man so universally celebrated forge a financial system that proved so fatally unstable? And how will his successors protect us from a future crash? 

Surveying the Global Crossroads of Politics and Finance

As globalization blurs the boundaries between national economies, the distinctions between political news and financial news are dissolving. Because events in one corner of the world can have major implications for markets around the globe, staying abreast of the latest political developments and economic data is essential in order to have a clear view of the forces shaping government and business decisions. Through roundtablespanel discussions, and quarterly World Economic Update meetings, I seek to put these current events in a larger macroeconomic context and consider their significance for leaders in both the public and private sector.

Op-Ed

Leaving the Euro Behind?

Author: Sebastian Mallaby
Washington Post

Sebastian Mallaby says that the eurozone's twin temptations--to borrow too much, to raise wages too much--always threatened the cohesion of the currency union. If Greece is rescued from its follies, these temptations will become stronger.

Op-Ed

What OPEC Teaches China

Author: Sebastian Mallaby
Washington Post

In this Washington Post op-ed, Sebastian Mallaby writes that China's currency manipulation is arguably the most important cause of the financial crisis. However, to get global growth going, it is more important to persuade China to extend its fiscal stimulus than to revalue its currency.
