About the Author

Martin E. Sandbu is the economics editorial writer for The Financial Times. He is also a Senior Fellow at the Zicklin Center for Business Ethics Research at the Wharton School, where he previously taught the main business ethics course in the undergraduate curriculum for several years. He has appeared on the BBC World Service, National Public Radio morning edition, and CNBC among other broadcast interviews.

In his academic career, Dr. Sandbu has worked on questions at the intersection between economics, politics and philosophy and published across all three fields. He holds degrees in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics from Balliol College, Oxford University, and in Political Economy and Government from Harvard University. His doctoral thesis, “Explorations in Process-Dependent Preference Theory,” was published in top academic field journals in economics and philosophy. His academic writings have analyzed topics including business ethics, distributive justice, preference theory, collective responsibility, deliberative democracy, and the political economy of development.

Dr. Sandbu’s interests range beyond the theoretical. His academic research has informed policy advice, including on natural resource governance in developing countries. He participates in the global policy debate through his contributions to the Financial Times’ editorial column and through opinion pieces in his own name in the FT and other newspapers. He has been invited to give numerous lectures, presentations, and panel appearances for the world’s top universities, national governments, intergovernmental organizations, top academic professional associations, and civil society groups.
