As a general rule, the lingua franca for economists is English. Much of the literature published in the field of economy is in English, international economic summits and conferences take place in English, and most post-graduate studies in economy are done entirely, or at least partially in English. This means that economists need to speak English in order to truly engage internationally. Not to do so would mean being limited to receiving information through interpreters and translators.
