Ted Fishman Biography

A veteran journalist and former commodities trader who has emerged as a leading expert on the People's Republic of China and its development as a world power, Fishman is the author of the best-selling book China, Inc.: How the Rise of the Next Superpower Challenges America and the World, which has helped describe the effects of China's momentous change on the lives and businesses of people everywhere. In addition to its success in America, the book has been translated and published in 15 foreign editions, including Japanese, German, Taiwanese, Korean, Spanish, and Turkish.

Fishman's essays and reports appear in many of the world's most prominent journals, including The New York Times Magazine, Harper's, Esquire, USA Today, GQ, The Times of London, Money, Worth, INC, Business 2.0, German GEO, and Chicago Magazine. His commentaries have been featured on PRI's "Marketplace." He has been featured on ABC World News Tonight, NBC's Today Show, CNN, Fox, NPR, and the BBC. He has testified before Senate and Congressional committees and commissions and consults on China with a wide range of government officials, including some of America's most influential office holders.

An accomplished public speaker who has addressed a wide range of audiences around the world, including corporate and trade gatherings, large civic gatherings, and universities, Fishman offers the intelligence and wit readers find in his writing. Most recently, his talks have focused on the emergence of China and its impact of the lives of Americans as consumers, workers, managers, and citizens. His presentations combine engaging storytelling with a wide-ranging knowledge about the world economy, putting into context his audiences' top concerns and exploring how they relate to big, global economic trends.

Fishman is a graduate of Princeton and in 2007 was a Visiting Scholar at Stanford University. He is also a faculty director at the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College, for which he helps run immersive programs on China for global executives. He has lived and worked in Japan and Indonesia.

Fishman is particularly interested in how big global economic trends bear on people's everyday experience. His most recent book, Shock of Gray, addresses how the changing age demographic of the world will affect the way we raise families, how we work, and how we function as citizens.

Ted Fishman Speaking Topics

  • China, Inc.: How the Rise of the Next Superpower Challenges America and the World

  • Small Places, Big Advantages

    Smaller places can thrive in the global economy if they harness their best assets: strong community, committed boosters and close-knit networks. Ted Fishman whose book, China, Inc., describes the effects of changes in the world’s most populous country on people everywhere, explores how smaller places are uniquely poised to profit as the needs of large economies propel globalization. Fishman matches the strengths of smaller places with the needs of the world’s biggest economic actors. While not all small places thrive, nearly all of the world’s richest places (per capita) are small-scale places, and nearly all of the world’s most globalized economies, with highest skilled professional workforces are also small places. Fishman’s talks build on interviews and research into the economy of his local audiences. He provides insights that can serve, among others, communities, local economic development bodies, workforce boards, educational institutions, chambers of commerce and local industries looking to provide thought leadership in their communities.

  • Gray New World

    Two remarkable, recent facts separate our age from every other. Nearly everywhere in the world families are shrinking dramatically in size and people are living longer than ever before. Through story, statistics and keen analysis, Ted Fishman makes a powerful case that these two historic changes lie at the heart of nearly every major social and economic trend today, driving globalization and propelling the movement of money, goods and people. The average age of people in the industrialized world is climbing, and worldwide the population over 55 is vastly expanding. The populations of many countries at the heart of the world economy are shrinking. Workforces in Europe and East Asia will shrink by hundreds of millions of workers, and spur vast waves of immigration. Even the world economic crisis is inseparable from the big demographic shift. Understanding this immense, unprecedented change is essential to the stewardship of companies, organizations and communities that aim to endure and thrive. Fishman has traveled our grayer future and found what's bright, what's stormy, and he is creating a map we all will need to navigate a great change. Fishman’s book, on these themes will appear in 2010 from Scribner Books.
