KEYNOTE SPEAKER: PAUL KRUGMAN
Professor of Economics and Distinguished Scholar at The Graduate Center, City University of New York. Winner of the 2008 Nobel Prize in Economics. 2011 Gerald Loeb Award winner for Commentary — New York Times.
One of the world’s foremost economists. A gifted observer and contributor on policy and economics. Committed to speaking the truth as he sees it in the most compelling terms. Insightful, outspoken, passionate and articulate. Author, End This Depression Now!, The Great Unraveling and The Return of Depression Economics and the Crisis of 2008.
As one of the world’s best known and most acclaimed economists, Paul speaks on the leading issues of the day affecting the world economy. An insightful, outspoken Op-Ed columnist for The New York Times, he is a passionate and articulate speaker, with a gift for relating global economic events to his audiences, and committed to speaking the truth as he sees it in the most compelling terms.
His twice-weekly Op-Ed pieces for The New York Times model the depth of insight and the unflinchingly outspoken style he brings to his speeches.
The author of several books, Professor Krugman’s most recent, End This Depression Now!, is a call for action. In it, Paul has a powerful message for anyone who has suffered during the Great Recession—a quick, strong recovery is just one step away, if our leaders can find the “intellectual clarity and political will” to end this depression now.
His previous books include The Conscience of a Liberal, The Great Unraveling, a bestseller, and The Return of Depression Economics and the Crisis of 2008, a response to the financial crisis, an updated edition of his 1999 book, The Return of Depression Economics.

He is recognized worldwide as a leader in the fields of economic geography and the role of increasing returns in shaping international trade.
