Rana Foroohar, global business columnist at The Financial Times and global economic analyst at CNN, covers the intersection of business, economics, politics and foreign affairs. She frequently profiles movers and shakers in finance and business, including Warren Buffett, Bill Gross, Howard Shultz, Mary Barra and Carl Icahn. Her high-level yet accessible analysis has made her a sought-after commentator on influential programs such as CNNI and Face the Nation.
Foroohar’s first book, Makers and Takers, was a finalist for the 2016 FT & McKinsey Business Book of the Year Award. Her upcoming book, Don’t Be Evil: The Trouble with Big Tech, looks at how the largest tech companies wield power over the economy and our society, and how the monetization of our information has distorted the very foundation of democracy. It is scheduled for release in the fall of 2019.
In this video, Foroohar talks about privacy, artificial intelligence and the digital economy.
Listen to this reading of a column she wrote for The Financial Times called “The Global Race for 5G Supremacy is Not Yet Won.”
