After graduation, she was recruited as an adviser to the Minister of Finance in Poland, as part of a small group headed by Professor Jeffrey Sachs of Harvard. She then spent two years as an economist at the International Monetary Fund (IMF), where she worked on macroeconomic adjustment programmes in Africa and the transition economies of Central and Eastern Europe.

Through this work, she joined The Economist in 1994 as the magazine's correspondent for emerging markets, based in London. She became the Economics editor in 1996, overseeing global economics coverage from Washington DC, and later moved to Business Affairs editor, responsible for business, finance and science. She began as the 17th and first female Editor-in-Chief on 2 February 2015.


Secured by her appointment to the top editor position at the Economist, Beddoes is considered one of the most influential voices in financial journalism. She has written surveys of the world economy, Latin American finance, global finance and Central Asia. She has written extensively about the American economy and international financial policy; the enlargement of the European Union; the future of the IMF; and economic reform in emerging economies. She has been published in Foreign Affairs and Foreign Policy, contributed chapters to several conference volumes, and edited Emerging Asia (Asian Development Bank, 1997), a book on the future of emerging-markets in Asia.

In May 1998, she provided expert testimony on the introduction of the Euro to the United States House Financial Services Subcommittee on International Monetary Policy and Trade, a subcommittee of the House Committee on Financial Services.

She gave the 28th Annual Max Rosenn Lecture on "Stress-Testing America's Prosperity" and has spoken at Princeton with Peter Orszag, Director of the Office of Management and Budget, and Professor Alan Blinder, Chair of the Center for Economic Policy Studies, Princeton. Their discussion was called "How Did We Get Into this Mortgage Mess, and How Do We Get Out?". Beddoes is a regular commentator on Marketplace and other public radio programs. She has also appeared on CNN, the BBC World Service, Charlie Rose, PBS NewsHour, CNBC, NBC, Real Time with Bill Maher and Public Interest. She is a regular panelist on Tucker Carlson Unfiltered.

She is a trustee of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace and a member of the Research Advisory Board of the Committee for Economic Development.

In 2015, Beddoes was one of 133 invitees to the elite 63rd Bilderberg conference, an invitation-only meeting of top business leaders, politicians, academics and royalty, for an informal and secret discussion of world issues.

Personal life

Beddoes, the daughter of a former army officer, was born Susan Jean, and later acquired the name Zanny. She is married to British-born journalist and author, Sebastian Mallaby.
