The Financial Times Asia Editor spent seven years as Tokyo Bureau Chief. He is a superb writer and returned to cover the effects of the Tsunami for the FT Magazine. His brilliant book Bending Adversity – Japan and the Art of Survival is a perfect introduction to the country both in its telling psychology and astute economic analysis. It is published by Penguin Press UK and US. His The Growth Delusion -Why economists are getting it wrong and what we can do about it, on how GDP is measured and how poorly it measures our lives, has had brilliant reviews for Bloomsbury UK and Tim Duggan Books US. Nature wrote. “Rarely does a study of gross domestic product (GDP) and growth sizzle with such wit and acuity. Masterful!’
