In our latest Masters in Business podcast, we speak with Bank america Merrill Lynch’s co-head of global economic research, Ethan Harris.
Harris is a history buff, as well as an expert on interest rates and monetary policy. He began his career as a researcher at the NY Fed, eventually rising to chief economist at Lehman Brothers. He has a Ph.D. in economics from Columbia University, where he also serves as a university fellow. Harris is also the author of Ben Bernanke’s Fed: The Federal Reserve After Greenspan.
Our conversation on the state of the global economy was very accessible and jargon-free. His description of the final days at Lehman Brothers was fascinating.
