About Bill Bishop

I am an entrepreneur and former media executive with more than a decade’s experience living in and decoding China. Since leaving Beijing in 2015, I’ve lived in in Washington DC. I have written the China Insider column for the New York Times Dealbook and, in the late 1990s, I co-founded MarketWatch. My views on China are frequently quoted in major media, such as Bloomberg, The Financial Times, The Wall Street Journal, Reuters, New York Times, and The Guardian. In 2015, I was named to Foreign Policy’s Pacific Power Index as one of 50 people shaping the future of the US-China relationship. I write a free weekly newsletter for Axios.
