Award winning financial journalist and author to visit School


The Economist‘s Philip Coggan visiting Cambridge Judge Business School to talk about his latest book, Paper Promises: Money, Debt and New World Order

Phillip CogganTaking place on Tuesday 6 March, the lecture is open to Cambridge Judge Business School students and faculty, and the University of Cambridge community. Philip will be discussing how economic history is a battle between creditors and debtors with the nature of money as the battleground. He believes that crises occur when the debtors fail to repay and the international order is remade. Such crises occurred in the 1930s and the 1970s and a new world order is emerging today.

Simon Taylor, Director of the Master of Finance (MFin) programme at Cambridge Judge Business School, said:

Philip is one of the leading financial journalists in the world and we’re delighted to have the chance to hear about his new book.”

Philip is currently the Buttonwood columnist of The Economist and previously worked for the Financial Times for 20 years, most recently as Investment Editor. In 2009, he was voted ‘Senior Financial Journalist of the Year’ in the Wincott Awards and ‘Best Communicator’ in the Business Journalist of the Year Awards. As well as Paper Promises, he is also the author of The Money Machine, a guide to the city that is still in print after 25 years, and The Economist Guide to Hedge Funds.
