Stuart Kelter interviews Martin Wolf, associate editor and chief economics commentator at The Financial Times, London. He has won numerous awards, including the 2019 Gerald Loeb Lifetime Achievement Award. He was a member of the UK’s Independent Commission on Banking in 2010–11. The Wikipedia entry on Wolf notes that he is widely regarded as one of the most influential economics journalists in the world. Lawrence H. Summers has called him "the world's preeminent financial journalist. "Paul Krugman wrote of him that "Wolf doesn't even have a PhD. And that matters not at all; what he has is a keen sense of observation, a level head, and an open mind.” Wolf is the author of five books on broad-ranging economic issues. His latest book, published just this year, is entitled, The Crisis of Democratic Capitalism, which is the subject of today’s interview.
