KEYNOTE SPEAKER


David A. Levy

David A. Levy

 

David A. Levy is a renowned economist, author, and former hedge fund manager. He is chairman of the Jerome Levy Forecasting Center, an economic research and consulting firm that serves hedge funds and other elite financial and nonfinancial clients and publishes the oldest U.S. newsletter devoted to economic analysis. Using a unique, financially-oriented model for forecasting and analyzing the economy – the Profits Perspective – he has built an impressive track record over 30 years, with his forecasts resulting on multiple occasions in extraordinary gains for clients and investors.

In the latest business cycle, Levy’s forecasts for a severe collapse of profits and a financial meltdown led to large gains for investors in the Levy Forecast Fund. Another of Levy’s triumphs was forecasting (and coining the term) “the contained depression” of the early 1990s.

Levy has given briefings, consultations, and testimony to members of Congress, administration officials, and Federal Reserve governors. He was appointed by President Clinton to the Commission to Study Capital Budgeting in 1997 and was also selected for the federal government’s Competitive Policy Council Infrastructure Subcouncil.

Levy is frequently quoted in the press and regularly appears on major television networks. He is the author of many articles and the coauthor, with S Jay Levy, of “Profits and the Future of American Society,” published by HarperCollins. He graduated from Williams College Phi Beta Kappa with a B.A. in mathematics and received an M.B.A. from the Columbia University School of Business.
