About our speaker

Daniel Ben-Amiis a journalist and commentator based in London. His book ‘Ferraris For All’ ruffled feathers by arguing that economic progress should be defended against attacks from the ‘no-growth’ sustainability set. His earlier book, ‘Cowardly Capitalism’ argues that the consensus is wrong on financial markets, which he suggests are characterised by risk aversion rather than risk taking.

Daniel is a contributor to Spiked.com, The Financial Times, The Guardian and The Independent, Prospect, Shanghai Daily and Economist.com, and he comments regularly in European and US broadcast media.
