Christian Broda is Both a Practical and Academic Economist

The Managing Director of the Duquesne Capital Management hedge fund since 2010, Christian Broda‘s career as an ecoonomist contains a unique mix of both academic and private industry and government practical achievement.

Before assuming the helm at Duquesne, Christian Broda was at the University of Chicago, Booth School of Business, as Professor of Economics with a long list of published articles in distinguished journals, including American Economic Review, Journal of Monetary and Economic Studies, Journal of International Economics and Quarterly Journal of Economics. He’s a member of the American Economic Association, the Econometric Society, the Economia Journal and the Society for Economic Dynamics. he’s also written books on economic subjects. From 2006-2008 he was a James S. Kemper Foundation Scholar, and he won two grants from the National Science Foundation to help finance his work and research.

Broda received his Bachelor of the Arts degree from the Universidad de San Andres, Argentina, in January 1997. He graduated summa cum laude. He earned his Master’s of Economics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in May 1999 and his Ph.D from MIT in June 2001.

Christian Broda started out working for the Federal Reserve Bank of New York in the department of International Research. His real-life experience also included a stint with Lehman Brothers as their Chief International Economist and with Barclays Capital, serving with their International Research at Columbia University as the Head of International Research.

The Wall Street Journal have publicized Broda’s view that inflation will remain low for a long time to come, and the U.S. dollar will therefore remain the world’s preferred reserve currency, keeping its value relatively high. This is an opinion many investors and economists disagree with, especially in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis.
