Sylvia Nasar

Columbia University

Sylvia Nasar, John S. and James L. Knight Professor of Business Journalism at Columbia University, will spend the spring at the Foundation writing a book on the intersecting histories of key economic thinkers in the past 150 years. She will profile great economists, from Alfred Marshall to Amartya Sen, whose work helped shift the focus of economics from the study of the limited potential for growth to the problem of poverty amid plenty.
