Presentation Topic: Pitfalls in a Post-Crisis World: Moment of Truth in Global Re-balancing

As one of Wall Street’s most influential economists, Stephen Roach ’68 knows a thing or two about good investments. His latest big deal is a teaching position at Yale University, where he is developing curriculum on Asia and macroeconomic policy. A California native, Roach discovered economics while a student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and he went on to earn a PhD from New York University. He has spent the bulk of his career as chief economist at Morgan Stanley, and more recently as chairman of the firm’s Asian businesses, including a three-year stint in Hong Kong. In addition to his senior fellow position at Yale, he will continue his 28-year career with Morgan Stanley in Asia and other parts of the world. Roach’s research, opinions and writings on globalization, the emergence of China, productivity and the macroeconomic impacts of information technology have appeared in academic journals, books and congressional testimony, and have helped shape policy from Beijing to Washington. His latest book, The Next Asia, was named the 2009 Book of the Year by China
