Ethan Harris on Rates and Monetary Policy
In our latest Masters in Business podcast, we speak with Bank of 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 Federal Reserve Bank of New York and eventually become chief economist at Lehman Brothers. Our conversation on the state of the global economy is accessible to non-economists and his description of the final days at Lehman is compelling. Harris, who holds a doctorate in economics from Columbia University, is the author of "Ben Bernanke’s Fed: The Federal Reserve After Greenspan."
