Economist Allen Sinai to address global economy at International Business School

Allen Sinai, co-founder and chief economist at Decision Economics, will offer his insights on the future prospects of the global economy in an open forum being held at Brandeis International Business School (IBS) at 3:30 p.m., Tuesday, Sept. 28, in Lee Lecture Hall.

Sinai is widely recognized for his objective and accurate forecasts of the economy and financial markets. He won the Top Forecaster-Wall Street Journal Survey in 2006 as well as the USA Today Survey Top Forecaster in 2003 and 2005, among other rankings. He consults with administrations of the Democratic and Republican parties, and frequently testifies before Congress. Most recently, he advised the House Democratic leadership on the economy and financial crisis.

The forum is sponsored by the Rosenberg Institute of Global Finance. IBS Professor Catherine L. Mann, director of the Rosenberg Institute, convenes programs each fall in which leading economists share their outlook on global economic trends. “Trends and volatility in global markets increasingly impact U.S. economic performance. At our fall Outlook Forum, our students get the most recent perspectives, and from provocative speakers, such as Dr. Sinai,” Mann said.

Sinai’s academic career includes teaching at Brandeis, and he has held academic and research positions at the Sloan School of Management at MIT, New York University, Boston University and the University of Illinois at Chicago. He co-founded Decision Economics, a global economics and financial market information advisory firm, in 1996. Prior to that, he served as chief global economist, managing director, and director of Lehman Brothers Global Economics.

This event is free and open to the public.
