Froma Harrop

Froma Harrop

American columnist and author

Froma Harrop covers the waterfront of politics, economics and culture with an unconventional approach. She takes public policy quite seriously. Herself, less so.

Despite some liberal tendencies, or because of them, Harrop has great affection for tradition. She also respects the profit motive, a reflection of years reporting on business and economics. But there are limits.

Recipient of numerous awards and honors, Harrop has worked on the Reuters business desk, edited economics reports for The New York Times News Service and served on the Providence Journal editorial board. She has written for such diverse publications as The New York Times, Harper’s Bazaar and Institutional Investor.

Harrop’s been seen on MSNBC and PBS and heard on NPR and many other radio outlets. And she is currently a contributor to CNN Opinion.

Raised in the Long Island suburbs, Harrop attended New York University. She now lives in New York City and Providence, Rhode Island.
