Frances Cairncross Biography

Journalist Frances Cairncross is one of the UK's most respected economic commentators. Formerly Management Editor of the Economist, she has held senior positions at The Times, The Banker, The Observer and The Guardian and presents BBC Radio 4's Analysis programme. Her broad-based knowledge of economics encompasses environmental change, the internet and mass communications.

Prior to becoming Rector of Exeter College in October 2004, she was The Economist's first Environment Editor, and in that capacity published two books on the subject, Costing the Earth: The Challenges for Governments, the Opportunities for

Her latest book, The Company of the Future, was published in 2002 by Harvard Business School Press. In March 2003 she won the Institute of Internal Auditors' annual award for business and management journalism. She is also the author of The Death of Distance, a study of the economic and social effects of the global communications revolution, first published in 1997 and re-published in a completely new edition in 2001.

As a business speaker, she draws on her wealth of experience to provide insightful and practical assessments of the economic scene. On the issue of climate change, Frances argues that policies that prepare the world to adapt to it are now just as important as efforts to slow it down.
