It’s about more than market reporting. As Luigi Zingales, professor at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business, put it in his Wincott Memorial Lecture in 2015:

“Inquisitive, daring and influential media outlets willing to take a strong stand against economic power are essential in a competitive capitalist society. They are our defence against crony capitalism.”

  • Start date: September 2017
  • Duration: 1 year
