Announced: Dr. Stanley Fischer
Posted on the 22nd November 2016 by Ieva
Warwick Economics Summit 2017 is delighted to announce the first speaker of the event - Dr. Stanley Fischer, the Vice Chairman of the Federal Reserve.
As the Federal Reserve’s Vice Chair since 2014, Dr Stanley Fischer is one of the key figures in the world of monetary policy. However, his career has not been limited to this field: Dr Fischer can count the World Bank, IMF and Citigroup amongst his previous employers, as well as being a prolific academic in his own right. In the latter role, he has been a key player in the school of New Keynesian Economics, particularly rational expectations, where he wrote the influential 1977 paper "Long-Term Contracts, Rational Expectations, and the Optimal Money Supply Rule".
Dr Fischer was educated at the LSE, then completed his PhD at MIT, where he would later return as a professor and advise future economic heavyweights such as Gregory Mankiw, Ben Bernanke and Mario Draghi. After the aforementioned spell in corporate banking, he served as Governor of the Bank of Israel from 2005-2013, winning the ‘Central Bank Governor of the Year’ by Euromoney magazine in 2010, before being appointed by Barack Obama to his current role as Vice-Chair of the Fed in January 2014.
