Macroeconomic forecasting is often thought to be a confusing science. David Levy walks listeners through profit-centered methodology and how the economy shifts.
David A. Levy is chairman of The Jerome Levy Forecasting Center, LLC, a macroeconomic forecasting and consulting firm using an uncommon, profit-centered methodology. He is a widely respected economist, investor, successful hedge fund manager, speaker, author, and former member of various public policy study groups, including a presidential commission. He forecast that the collapse of the housing bubble would cause a broad financial crisis and severe recession—and started a hedge fund in 2004 exclusively to capitalize on the resultant interest rate collapse. Levy graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Williams College with a B.A. in mathematics and has an MBA from Columbia Business School.
