A brilliant economist and acclaimed Dean at Columbia Business School, Hubbard has been a leading voice for economic guidance over the past two decades. His recently published articles for the Wall Street Journal, The Hill and New York Times discussing the changing fiscal climate highlight how his clear, candid insights and shrewd commentary continue to influence U.S. policy decisions. A former Chairman of the U.S. Council of Economic Advisors and current Co-Chair of the Committee on Capital Markets Regulation, Hubbard is frequently sought-out for his expertise, because as he recently told CNN Money: “Economists offer a perspective in policy debates.
