John G. Fernald, Economist

I am the Shroders Chair in European Competitiveness and Reform and a Professor of Economics at INSEAD Business School in Fontainebleau, France. I am also a Senior Research Adviser for international economics at the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco (on leave after August 2017). I have spent 24 years in the Federal Reserve System, combining policy analysis and academic research. At INSEAD, I teach macroeconomics in the global environment for the MBA program, and I also present on the global economic outlook for executives. 

My research interests include applied macroeconomics, U.S. and global productivity trends, and emerging Asia.
