FT column: A president under business attack

My latest column is on President Obama and US businesses.

Heads of US businesses who once thought well of President Barack Obama have turned to grumbling. These days they come not to praise, but to accuse him of over-reaching and indecision. The outlook for taxes and regulation worries them, they say. There is too much uncertainty. This is holding back investment and growth.

I have been the FT's Washington columnist since April 2007. I moved from Britain to the US in 2005 to write for the Atlantic Monthly and the National Journal after 20 years working at the Economist, most recently as deputy editor. I write mainly about the intersection of politics and economics.
