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, Mr. Mallaby has served as a contributing editor for the Financial Times and as a columnist and editorial board member at the Washington Post. His interests cover a wide variety of domestic and international issues, including 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 New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, and the Atlantic Monthly.

Mr. Mallaby is currently writing a biography of the former Federal Reserve chairman, Alan Greenspan. His previous book, More Money Than God: Hedge Funds and the Making of a New Elite, was released in June 2010. New York Times columnist David Brooks has called it "superb." Washington Post columnist Steve Pearlstein has called it "the definitive history of the hedge fund, a compelling narrative full of larger-than-life characters and dramatic tales of their financial triumphs and reversals." More Money Than God was the recipient of the 2011 Loeb Prize, a finalist in the Financial Times/Goldman Sachs prize, and a New York Times bestseller. Mr. Mallaby's earlier books are The World's Banker (2004), a portrait of the World Bank under James Wolfensohn, which was named as an "Editor's Choice" by the New York Times; and After Apartheid (1992), 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 Post in 1999, Mr. 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, Mr. Mallaby was the Economist's Washington bureau chief and wrote the magazine's weekly Lexington column on American politics and foreign policy. His Foreign Affairs essay on failed states in 2002 was cited by commentators in the New York Times, Financial Times, and Time Magazine. He is a two-time Pulitzer Prize finalist: once for editorials on Darfur and once for a series on economic inequality.

Mr. Mallaby was educated at Oxford. He graduated in 1986 with a First Class degree in modern history.

Alan Greenspan and the Making of the Modern Financial System

Alan Greenspan made his first foray onto the national scene in 1968 when he served as an advisor to the Nixon presidential campaign. From that point until his retirement from the Federal Reserve in 2006, Greenspan was at or near the center of economic and financial policy. Over those four decades, the United States moved from a gold link to a free-floating currency, from autarkic capital controls to globalized finance, and from a highly regulated banking system to free-wheeling markets. Greenspan was close to the decisions that drove these changes—whether through his stint as chairman of the Council of Economic Advisors in the Ford years, through his many roles as an informal advisor to Republican administrations, through his positions on the boards of various financial institutions, or through his long years at the helm of the Federal Reserve. By tracing these twin threads, my forthcoming biography of the former Federal Reserve chairman will therefore tell two stories: the making of the man, and the making of the modern financial system.

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 roundtables, panel 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 Author: Sebastian Mallaby
Financial Times

Sebastian Mallaby argues that because hedge funds are small enough to fail, they represent an appealing alternative to too-big-to-fail banks. If the new Financial Stability Oversight Council were to burden hedge funds with oversight and hamper their growth, it would reduce the amount of risk that they absorb, paradoxically making the financial system less stable.

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.

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.
