Eric Albert is a London-based journalist, working as City correspondent for Le Monde and collaborating with Radio France and the Swiss newspaper Le Temps. He has lived in London for 12 years, where he worked successively for Bloomberg TV, La Croix and Ouest-France, then La Tribune (2008-2011). He has started working for Le Monde in January 2012, first as general news correspondent and now as City correspondent.
Before that, Eric was based for five years in Bangkok, Thailand, where he covered South-East Asia for a range of radio and newspapers.
Eric has just published a book about the English (not the British). The book -in French- identifies the slight identify crisis of the English. Slight because the English don't do revolution. But crisis nevertheless: Scotland is going ever further apart, the English are thinking of leaving the EU, and within England, London is growing more than ever as a separate entity. It creates a "malaise", a word so far mostly reserved to the French. (Les Anglais, dans le doute! éditions Henry Dougier, avril 2015).
