Consultant Editor, The Economist
John Andrews is a consultant editor for The Economist, the prestigious British weekly.
Until moving back to London in November 2006, he was The Economist’s most experienced foreign correspondent. In a 24‐year career that included positions in London as industry editor and Asia editor, his foreign postings have ranged from Singapore and Hong Kong to Brussels, Washington DC, Paris and finally Los Angeles.
John Andrews has written two books on Asia, co‐authored a book on Europe and contributed chapters to other books, including the Encyclopaedia Britannica. He has been a Hearst journalism fellow at the Annenberg School of Communication, University of Southern California. His latest book is The Economist Book of Isms and he is currently writing The World in Conflict, an analysis of present day war and terrorism to be published by Profile Books under The Economist imprint in 2015. Andrews is the co‐editor of Megachange: The World in 2050, which examines the key developments that will determine our future. His special reports in The Economist —12,000–word essays which, unlike the magazine’s other articles, carry a by‐line—have covered subjects as diverse as civil aerospace, the European Union and the world of sport. He is a frequent broadcaster and public speaker.
