Who wrote it then?

Yesterday evening I bought, for the first time ever, a copy of the Financial Times (had run out of puppy training pads and needed a broadsheet) and was thoroughly confused by an article and banner on the front page.

The paper had a picture of Niall Ferguson on it and directed you to the commentary section and this article by-lined as "by Niall Ferguson". Yet at the end of the article it says,
The writer is Laurence A Tisch Professor of History at Harvard University, author of The Ascent of Money and a contributing editor of the FT
What's that all about then?

Update: Oh *face palm* fail on my part. Seems that "Laurence A Tisch" is a title/role at Harvard. Je suis un cock!
