The global economy was rocked nearly a decade ago by the worst recession in eighty year. In 2017, it seemed to finally find its post-crisis footing, and growth in many areas of the world was stronger than expected. As governments and central banks consider scaling back stimulus policies, are we well-equipped to handle another potential economic crisis? Join us as Brandeis International Business School’s Stephen Cecchetti discusses this and other questions in a timely, informative lunch event co-presented by the Boston Economic Club.
Stephen G. Cecchetti is Rosen Family Chair in International Finance at the Brandeis International Business School. He previously taught at Brandeis from 2003 to 2008. Before rejoining Brandeis in 2014, Cecchetti completed a five-year term as Economic Adviser and Head of the Monetary and Economic Department at the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland. He also served as Director of Research at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York from 1997 to 1999, taught at the New York University Leonard N. Stern School of Business in the mid-1980s, and was a member of the Department of Economics at The Ohio State University. In 2016, he received an Honorary Doctorate in Economics from the University of Basel.
