Seminar Summary:


Full Audio:


Robert A. Mundell was a member of the Johns Hopkins SAIS international economics faculty and taught at SAIS Europe four academic years during the period 1959-2001. Much of his pioneering work in monetary dynamics and optimum currency areas, which resulted in his Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Science in 1999, was conducted during his time in Bologna. Professor Mundell plans to return to SAIS Europe for this special occasion.

This event is the inaugural lecture in the four-part series of the Johns Hopkins SAIS Global Risk Conference, intended for a non-technical audience. It is a central initiative to engage the policy and professional communities with the scholarship emerging from the school's Master of Arts in Global Risk.


John Lipsky is Peter G. Peterson Distinguished Scholar at the Johns Hopkins SAIS Henry A. Kissinger Center for Global Affairs and Senior Fellow at the Foreign Policy Institute.

Most recently, Lipsky was first deputy managing director of the International Monetary Fund and previously held positions of vice chairman of JPMorgan Investment Bank; chief economist at JPMorgan Chase; chief economist and director of research at Chase Manhattan Bank, and chief economist and director of the European Economic and Market Analysis Group in London at Salomon Brothers. Early in his career, Lipsky spent 10 years at the International Monetary Fund, helping manage the fund's exchange rate surveillance procedure, analyzing developments in international capital markets, participating in negotiations with several member countries and serving as the fund's resident representative in Chile. He is currently co-chair of the Aspen Institute's Program on the World Economy; is an Executive Director of the National Bureau of Economic Research and serves on the advisory board of the Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research. Lipsky is also a Director of the Center for Global Development, and a life member of the Council on Foreign Relations. He has a PhD in economics from Stanford University
