Award winning author, journalist and U.S. editor at large at the Financial Times, Gillian Tett has been named Columnist of the Year (2014), Journalist of the Year (2009) and Business Journalist of the Year (2008) She is one of the few leading economists who predited the financial crisis in 2006. In her famous 2009 book 'Fool's Gold, she recounts how a  tightly bonded team of bankers - the "Morgan Mafia" - triggered the global recession.

Lately, she has argued that economists alone cannot predict the future and her most recent book, 'Anthro-Vision', using insights from anthropology, provides a 'revelatory, new model that explains how we buy, sell, work and live.
