About the speaker

Adam S Posen has been president of the Peterson Institute for International Economics since January 2013. Over his career, he has contributed to research and public policy regarding monetary and fiscal policies in the G-20, the challenges of European integration since the adoption of the euro, and China-US economic relations. He was one of the first economists to seriously address the political foundations of central bank independence and to analyse Japan’s Great Recession as a failure of macroeconomic policy. While at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York during 1994-97, he co-authored Inflation Targeting: Lessons from the International Experience with Ben Bernanke, Thomas Laubach, and Frederic Mishkin. From 2009-12, Posen served a three-year term as an external voting member of the Bank of England’s rate-setting Monetary Policy Committee. Posen received his BA and PhD from Harvard University.
