    Journalist & Author

    Ted C. Fishman is an award-winning journalist, best-selling author and former derivatives trader. He is the author of two seminal books that have been translated into 27 languages: China, Inc., in which he describes the effects of China's emergence as a world power on the lives and businesses of people everywhere, and Shock of Gray, which explores how the aging of the world’s population and the worldwide trend toward smaller families drive globalization and change our most important relationships. Fishman appears frequently as a commentator on television and radio and his work has been featured in The New York Times Magazine, USA Today, The Wall Street Journal, National Geographic, Chicago magazine, Bloomberg Businessweek, Money and Harper's. Additionally, he has advised and written speeches for high government officials in the US and abroad. Fishman has been a fellow at the think tank for the US Chamber of Commerce and a visiting scholar at Stanford University’s Center on Longevity. He was also faculty director and lecturer with programs for global executives through Dartmouth's Tuck School of Business.
