Baroness Dambisa Moyo is a seriously impressive woman. She’s worked at the World Bank and Goldman Sachs analysing global economic trends, and sat on the boards of numerous FTSE100 companies including Barclays and Chevron. She’s also the author of five books including best-sellers Dead Aid – a critique of development policy in Africa – and How the West was Lost, about a series of mistakes and failures of postwar economic policy that have seen the balance of power tip towards China.
On top of all that she’s a sought-after speaker and writer, and advises the Government on racial and ethnic disparities.
Our deputy editor Alys Denby caught up with her backstage at the Centre for Policy Studies’ Margaret Thatcher Conference to discuss the macro-economic challenges facing the world, what Britain can do about them, and why international finance is no longer a man’s world.
