Daniel Ben-Ami

Daniel Ben-Ami has worked as a writer for many years, during which time he has contributed to numerous national, specialist and international publications. Ferraris For All, his book defending economic progress, was published in 2010. A paperback edition, including an additional chapter on the inequality debate in the West, was published in 2012.

His book on global finance, Cowardly Capitalism (Wiley, 2001), was recommended by the Baker Library of Harvard Business School. Daniel writes regularly for the Financial Times on wealth and related topics. One day he hopes to untangle all the different ways in which the term ‘equality’ is used.

"Participating in the Battle was a little like entering a Bombay train at rush hour - it's a plunge into a swirl of wildly differing notions of how people should arrange themselves in a really tight situation. When you eventually emerge, you find that you're in a different place from where you started - and that you've been thoroughly energised from the journey. I can't wait to take the trip again next year."
