Anyone anywhere who is familiar with the topic of economics and/or finances has most likely heard the name, Christian Broda at one time or another. The once-tenured professor of economics at the University of Chicago, Booth School of Business, is known for making statements that don’t always line up with others in his profession. While many economists warned about the demise of the U.S. dollar if the Federal Reserve exited quantitative easing (QE), Broda said to ValueWalk, “It seems wise to keep your investment in the U.S.” In 2004 when many were warning of Japan having a financial collapse, he said those predictions were based on things that weren’t understood at the time. He also states because of their role in QE Japan played back in the 1990s, the world needs to pay attention to what goes on in that country.
Currently, Broda who equates moderation to financial prosperity, serves as the managing director at Duquesne Capital Management. He graduated Summa Cum Laude from the Universidad de San Andres in Argentina. He also has both a master’s and doctorate degree in economics from MIT.
Broda has been published in several academic journals including the American Economic Review, Economic Times, IMF Review, and the Quarterly Journal of Economics. He participates in speaking engagements around the world and is also a hedge fund manager. He has advised that others interested in creating their own hedge funds need to get seed funding by attracting capital investors, establish relationships with law firms, find a good broker and rent office space to look more professional.
Broda serves as a member of The American Economic Association, the National Bureau of Economic Research, Econometric Society, Latin American and Caribbean Economic Association and the Society for Economic Dynamics. Please note that he is not the Austrian politician of the same name.
