Mohamed El-Erian

Mohamed El-Erian's columns for the FT are hard to read because they are poorly written. He has a fondness for jargon and economics-drivel that can grind one's teeth. Today's worst sentence? Here you go:

"....the shock to public finances is undermining the analytical relevance of conventional classifications."

Nevertheless, El-Erian's column today is on target and important reading, even if it's a bit like going to the dentist.
