International Business Times names Carter Dougherty Senior International Economics Writer
New York, NY – November 2, 2015 — International Business Times, a digital global news publication, today announced that award-winning journalist, Carter Dougherty, has joined the newsroom as Senior International Economics Writer. He will be based in Washington, D.C.
In his new role, Dougherty will cover international economics and relevant policy-making institutions including the World Bank, International Monetary Fund, US Treasury, Federal Reserve and US Trade Representative. His stories will explore currency fluctuations, trade and flows of capital, connecting these subjects to geopolitical forces and everyday concerns such as the job market, housing and the environment.
“Carter immediately makes us stronger in a core area of interest — international economics,” said Global Editor-In-Chief Peter S. Goodman. “As an experienced international correspondent who has worked in Africa and Europe while also diving into the key policy-making institutions in Washington, Carter is especially skilled at finding compelling stories that reveal the workings of the global economy.”
Dougherty has covered international economic issues for nearly 20 years, starting at the specialty publication Inside U.S. Trade in Washington. Since then he’s been based in Washington, Europe and Africa, writing about trade policy debates, the illicit traffic in diamonds, export powerhouses in Germany and the global financial crisis and recession. He has worked for Bloomberg News, The New York Times and The Washington Times, and his writing has also appeared in The Economist, Newsweek and The Boston Globe.
