With the financial world in an increasingly unstable state following the economic meltdown of 2008, followed by the Great Recession, economic experts like academic and hedge fund manager Christian Broda are becoming much sought after voices of reason in an increasingly unpredictable world.
Broda’s background as a Managing Director at Duquesne Capital Management and as a former Professor of Economics at the University of Chicago gives him a keen perspective on today’s volatile economic environment. Brody is also one voice in the economic world who’s still strong on the strength of the U.S. dollar. It’s a view that sets him apart from some of the other economic experts currently weighing in on the state of today’s global economy, but it’s one he feels strongly about.
Broda has weighed in heavily in favor of the dollar’s strength, even when it has put him at odds with other major economic experts. Broda is not alone in championing the ongoing strength of the dollar as the global currency of choice, however. Another economic academic expert, Eswar S. Prasad, of Cornell University, echoes Broda’s view that the dollar has lost none of its strength, even in today’s unpredictable world economy. It is Broda’s view that investors will do well to stay with the dollar, and that its strength will continue, even in today’s choppy financial waters.
Christian Broda has a Ph.D from MIT, and is the author of numerous books and articles on world economic issues, finance and business. His work, as a writer and researcher, has been seen in major journals including the American Economic Review as well as the Quarterly Journal of Economics. Broda, the married father of two sons, also serves as an associate editor of the Journal of Development Economics.
