I am a professor of economics at the Stern School of Business, New York University where I have been on the faculty since 1972. I am the Academic Director for Stern's BS in Business and Political Economy, an innovative undergraduate degree introduced in 2009. I am a macroeconomist with research interests in monetary policy and banking, economic growth and the transition economies.  I teach courses in global business, macro-economics, monetary policy and banking.

Over the years I have served as the chairperson of the Economics Department and as Vice Dean for Program Development at Stern and also as the chairperson of the University Faculty Council.  I have also been a research associate at the National Bureau of Economic Research, a senior economic advisor to the East West Institute, and a consultant to the Bank of Israel, the IMF, and the World Bank.

I am the co-editor of Comparative Economic Studies and serve on the editorial boards of several other journals.  I am a member of the scientific committee for the Croatian National Bank’s annual Dubrovnik Economic Conference and chair the International Faculty committee of the International School for Economics in Tblisi.
