Wolfgang Münchau is considered one of the world’s foremost experts on the Eurozone.  Until recently, he wrote the European economic column of the Financial Times.

Together with the economist Susanne Mundschenk, he co-founded Eurointelligence.com, a news analysis service dedicated to providing information and debate about the economics, finance and politics of the Eurozone. The Eurointelligence Daily Morning Newsbriefing is widely considered to be the most incisive daily information sources on the Eurozone. His columns are syndicated to El Pais, Handelsblatt and Corriere della Sera.

He is a member of the European Council on Foreign Relations.   In 2014, Wolfgang was the John F. Kennedy Memorial Fellow at the Center for European Studies at Harvard University.
