Insight with Bill Emott

A chance to meet the outgoing editor of The Economist - one of the world’s most influential publications - and to find out what is behind its famously unsigned articles.

With so many current affairs titles facing plummeting circulations and pressure to dumb down, how has The Economist managed to double its circulation to over a million? Emmott's tenure hasn't been without controversy: The Economist supported the invasion of Iraq, and its predictions of oil prices dropping to $5 a barrel and a housing market crash haven’t materialised.

Join us, as Bill Emmott speaks with John Lloyd, contributing editor at the rival FT, of the highs and lows of his career with The Economist, and why his planned new book on China and Japan in the so-called “Pacific Century” is so important.

John Lloyd writes a weekly column - “The Ideas Department” - on current affairs for the FT magazine, of which he was founding editor. He has been a reporter and producer for LWT’s London Programme and Weekend World, and editor of Time Out and the New Statesman magazines. He is the author of three books, including 2004's What the Media Are Doing to Our Politics.
