Founded in 1888 by James Sheridan and his brother, the Financial Times competed for many years with four other finance-oriented newspapers, finally in 1945 absorbing the last of these, the Financial News (founded in 1884). The FT has specialized in reporting business and financial news while maintaining an independent editorial outlook. On occasion it has attacked the financial policies of the British government. Circulation of the FT is said to be one of the world's highest among financial newspapers, second only to that of The Wall Street Journal. Printed as a broadsheet on distinctive light salmon pink paper, the FT is the only paper in the UK providing full daily reports on the London Stock Exchange and world markets.

History

The FT was launched as the London Financial Guide on January 9, 1888, by Horatio Bottomley, renaming itself the Financial Times on February 13 of the same year. Describing itself as the friend of "The Honest Financier and the Respectable Broker", it was initially published as a four page journal from its headquarters in London. The initial readership was the financial community of the City of London. The Financial Times soon established itself as the sober but reliable "stockbroker's Bible" or alternatively "parish magazine of the City", with its only rival being the slightly older and more daring Financial News. In 1893, the FT turned salmon pink — although later credited as a marketing masterstroke that made it immediately distinguishable from its competitor, the similarly named Financial News (founded 1884) this move was in truth inspired by economy - pink paper being cheaper than white.[citation needed] In 1993, the FT printed a single edition of the paper on white stock to commemorate this change a hundred years earlier. From their initial rivalry, the two papers merged in 1945 to form a single six-page newspaper. The Financial Times brought with it a higher circulation, while the Financial News provided enormous editorial talent. is the 9th day of the year in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Over the years, the newspaper grew in size, readership and breadth of coverage. It also established a network of correspondents in major cities around the world, reflecting early moves in the world economy towards globalisation. The world economy can be evaluated in various ways, depending on the model used, and this valuation can then be represented in various ways (for example, in 2006 US dollars). ... Globalization is a term used to describe the changes in societies and the world economy that are the result of dramatically increased trade and cultural exchange. ...


As cross-border trade and capital flows increased rapidly during the 1970s, the FT began a programme of international expansion, facilitated by developments in technology and the growing acceptance of English as the international language of business. The English language is a West Germanic language that originates in England. ...


On 1 January 1979, the first FT to be printed outside the UK rolled off the presses in Frankfurt. Since then, with its greatly increased international coverage, the FT has become a truly global business newspaper, printed in 23 locations worldwide, with three international editions to serve the needs of its readers in the UK, Continental Europe, the US and Asia. is the 1st day of the year in the Gregorian calendar. ...

The European edition is distributed in Continental Europe, Middle East, Africa and Asia. It is printed Monday to Saturday at five strategically located print centres across Europe. Thanks to its extensive network of correspondents reporting from all the political and commercial nerve centres of Europe, the FT is widely regarded to be the premier news source involving the European Union, the Euro, and European corporate affairs. For other uses, see Euro (disambiguation). ...


On 13 May 1995 the Financial Times group made its first foray into the online world with the launch of the first version of [FT.com] [1] which was the result of internal development effort. This edition provided a high level summary of news stories from around the globe and was supplemented in February 1996 with the launch of stock prices followed in Spring 1996 by the second generation site. The site was advertising funded and contributed to the development of the emerging online advertising market in the UK in the late 1990s. Between 1997 and 2000 the site underwent several revamps and changes of strategy as both the FT Group and Pearson reacted to the rapidly changing online marketplace. FT.com is now one of the few UK news sites successfully operating a subscription model for content.


In 1997, the FT launched the US edition, which is now printed in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Dallas, Atlanta, Orlando and Washington, DC, although the newspaper was first printed in the United States outside of New York City in 1985. In March 2006, the FT's US circulation was 137,845.[2] For the band, see 1997 (band). ...


In September 1998, the FT became the first UK-based newspaper to sell more copies internationally than within the UK. Worldwide circulation stands at 432,548 (Source: ABC July 2006), with global readership estimated at over 1.6 million people in more than 140 countries.


Since 2000, the FT publishes a German language edition, Financial Times Deutschland, with its own news coverage. Its circulation in 2003 was approximately 90,000. Year 2000 (MM) was a leap year starting on Saturday (link will display full 2000 Gregorian calendar). ...

On April 23, 2007, following in the wake of other notable newspaper redesigns such as the January 2007 Wall Street Journal revamp, the FT also relaunched the paper, complete with a new typeface, new labelling, but with no reduction in paper size (unlike with the recent Wall Street Journal redesign or the expected New York Times redesign). This redesign has been billed by some as the “most dramatic revamp [of the FT] in a generation” and, in addition to the typeface changes, includes the addition of more panels in the news pages, more first page feature content in the “Companies and Markets” section, and more “squeezed” sports content, to allow for an extra foreign news page.[3] FT editor Barber notes that the changes are “evolutionary and will provide extra news, deeper analysis and comment. By improving the navigation of the newspaper, we're aiming to help our busy readers get more out of the paper so that they understand that the Financial Times is not only as an informative and entertaining read, but also as an essential business tool”[4] and he dubs the redesigned paper as being a “sharper” FT.[5] Some subtle changes include the reintroduction, above the leaders, of the FT's original 1888 motto, “Without fear and without favour”[6] and more signposts to FT.com. To coincide with the redesign, Pearson PLC announced a new advertising campaign centred around the tag-line “We Live in Financial Times”.[7][8] The FT redesign was handled by and was the first major project for design firm Shakeup Media and young American designer Ryan Bowman.[9][10] is the 113th day of the year (114th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Opinions

The Financial Times is normally seen politically as centrist, although to the left of its principal competitor, The Wall Street Journal. It advocates free markets and is generally in favour of globalisation. During the 1980s it supported Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan's monetarist policies. However, it has recently seemed to have aligned itself with Labour in the UK. It also has been quite supportive, until recently, of Gordon Brown, the current British Prime Minister. FT editorials have tended to be pro-European Union, though often taking a critical view. Several members of British far-left groups, however, do work for the paper, and it is popular among the left (Noam Chomsky cites it as a useful newspaper; he has said that it is "the only paper that tells the truth").[11] In politics, centrism usually refers to the political ideal of promoting moderate policies which land in the middle ground between different political extremes. ... The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) is an international daily newspaper published by Dow Jones & Company in New York City, New York, USA, with Asian and European editions, and a worldwide daily circulation of more than 2 million as of 2006, with 931,000 paying online subscribers. ...
