John Dizard has been a financial journalist for 34 years. He writes a weekly column for the Financial Times called Street Talk which covers global macro investing, the political economy of currencies, energy, commodities, emerging market debt, the international and domestic credit markets, the automation of securities exchanges, and Iraqi economics and finance. He also writes for The New York Post, The New York Observer, National Review, Fortune Magazine, Institutional Investor, Fortune, Forbes, Barrons, and the New York Journal of Commerce. Previously, he was the London Bureau Chief of Institutional Investor, a correspondent for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, and the managing editor of Canadian Business Magazine.
Dizard has reported on the postwar Iraqi economy, and on the machinations of Ahmed Chalabi, the controversial Iraqi exile turned politician. He has also reported on coups d'etat in Portugal and Argentina. While at Forbes, he exposed the existence of a secret uranium cartel that fixed prices, and the story led to a successful antitrust suit against the cartel. Dizard has also acted as an advisor to several large individual investors. Namely, Frank Zarb, the head of Lazars Freres' International Department to whom he brought the "Giscard arbitrage" trade in a French government gold backed bond that was described in fictional form in Tom Wolfe's "The Bonfire of the Vanities"; and for the Mocatta Corporation, a division of the oldest gold trading firm. He often appears on CNBC, Fox News, and CBC. He lectures regularly to financial and energy groups on market issues such as the prospects for various currencies and the restructuring of the electricity grid.
Dizard has written about the economics and finance of gold for over two decades for Fortune, Corporate Finance Magazine, the New York Post,National Review and the Financial Times, usually to debunk "goldbug" claims and conspiracy theories. He is now bullish on gold.
Dizard attended Georgetown and Tufts and studied political economy at the University of Saskatchewan, where he wrote a thesis on the European nonferrous metals cartel.
