Economic Briefing with Professor Danny Quah

The annual Economic Briefing is the flagship financial event in the British Chamber’s calendar. Led by a prominent economist, we take a deep dive into the current state of the economy, look into potential future scenarios, and most importantly what this will mean for your business. We were honoured this year to be joined by Professor Danny Quah, Acting Dean, Li Ka Shing Professor in Economics, and Vice Dean (Academic Affairs) at the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy.
 
Professor Quah unravelled the recent shifts in global economy to the East and changes in the political system to hypothesise potential outcomes for the year ahead and beyond. The presentation was followed with a fire side discussion with moderator Manisha Tank and audience Q&A.

 

ABOUT THE SPEAKER

 

Danny Quah is Acting Dean, Li Ka Shing Professor in Economics, and Vice Dean (Academic Affairs) at the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, NUS.  His current research takes an economic approach to world order, studying the supply and demand of world order: on the one hand, what international system the world’s superpowers provide, and on the other, what world order the global community needs.  
 
Quah uses this to recast analysis of global power shifts, the rise of the east, regional order, and models of global power relations.
 
Quah is a member of the Spence-Stiglitz Commission on Global Economic Transformation. He is the author of “The Global Economy’s Shifting Centre of Gravity”.  Quah gave the third LSE-NUS lecture in 2013, and TEDx talks in 2016, 2014, and 2012.  Quah was previously Assistant Professor of Economics at MIT, and then Professor of Economics and International Development, and Director of the Saw Swee Hock Southeast Asia Centre at LSE.  He had also served as LSE’s Head of Department for Economics, and Council Member on Malaysia’s National Economic Advisory Council.   
 
Quah studied at Princeton, Minnesota, and Harvard.
