Born and raised in Zambia, Dambisa was encouraged by her parents to pursue her dreams and to aim high. She left Africa to study Chemistry and then finance at the American University in Washington D.C, which she followed up with a Masters degree from Harvard University and a PhD in economics from Oxford University.

Her passion for global economics and her thirst for first-hand knowledge of the world has taken Dambisa to over 50 different countries. In order to establish a unique insight into the political, economic, and financial workings of emerging economies, Dambisa does not stop learning, reading, and thinking. Her work has mainly focused on the BRICs and the economies in Asia, South America, Africa and the Middle East, and her primary focus has been to examine the connections between rapidly developing countries, international business and the global economy.

After a decade with Goldman Sachs, Dambisa consulted for the World Bank in Washington D.C., and currently sits on the boards of Barclays Bank, the financial services group, the global brewer and Barrick Gold, the global miner.

Dambisa has published three books, including two New York Times bestsellers, ‘Dead Aid: Why Aid is Not Working and How There is a Better Way for Africa’ and ‘How the West was Lost: Fifty Years of Economic Folly and the Start Choices Ahead’. Her third book ‘Winner Take All: China’s Race for Resources and what it Means for the World’ was published in 2012 and featured at number 13 on the New York Times bestsellers list.

Named by Time Magazine as one of the ‘100 Most Influential People in the World’ in 2009, Dambisa was elected onto the World Economic Forum’s Young Global Leaders Forum, and is a contributing editor to CNBC, the ‘Financial Times’ and the ‘Wall Street Journal’.

In 2013, Dambisa was part of a small group of global policymakers and economists who spent time with China's President Xi Xingping in Beijing, where they discussed issues of global economic growth, poverty, income inequality and the environment.

Her 2013 Ted talk - Is China the New Idol for Emerging Economies? - has been watched over 1.5 million times, and she was awarded the Hayek Lifetime Achievement Award, named after the Nobel Prize winner and recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, Friedrich Hayek.
