I consult on economics and investment strategy and serve as chief economist for the NY-based communications firm, Vested. I am a contributing editor for The National Interest and an affiliate of the Center for the Study of Human Capital and Economic Growth at the University at Buffalo (SUNY). In my long career in finance, I have held positions as portfolio manager, director of research, and chief investment officer. My most recent book, Thirty Tomorrows, takes up the question of how economies can meet the challenge of globalization and aging demographics. I hold an MSS in mathematical economics from Birmingham University in England and a BA in economics from the State University of New York at Buffalo.
