Paul Blustein has written about economic issues for more than 35 years, first as a reporter at leading news organizations and later as the author of several critically-acclaimed books. He is currently a Senior Fellow at the Centre for International Governance Innovation.
A graduate of the University of Wisconsin and Oxford University, where he was a Rhodes Scholar, Paul spent most of his career reporting for The Washington Post and The Wall Street Journal. His work has won several prizes, including business journalism's most prestigious, the Gerald Loeb Award. Articles he has written in recent years have been published by Fortune, Slate, Politico, Foreign Policy, Bloomberg View, and other media outlets. His reporting and research have taken him to more than fifty countries on six continents.
Paul lives in Kamakura, Japan, with his wife, Yoshie Sakai, and is the father of four children. A recent professional interest of Paul's, following his experience of living through the March 2011 earthquake, is the Fukushima nuclear accident. But his main focus continues to be economics; his fifth book--about the IMF and the euro zone crisis--was published in October 2016, and he is currently working on another book about China and the global trading system.
