The Best of Economist Christian Broda

I know it’s odd, but my favorite people to follow on Twitter are those that have something real to say. One of my favorite discoveries on Twitter right now is economist Christian Broda. Not only does he post about the economics, he also has some great tweets too. Here’s a little more about him, maybe you’ll find him as fascinating as I do.

Christian Broda is Duquesne Capital Management’s MD. He has worked as a professor in Booth School of Business, University of Chicago from 2005 to 2010. He also worked with Lehmann/Barclay’s Capital between 2008 and 2010 as the Head of Intl. Research. He finished his B.A. from University of San Andres (summa cum laude) and then went on to get his Ph.D. from MIT. Christian Broda is also a member of NBER and IMF Economic Review’s editorial board (which he has presented on). He works as an associated editor for the widely regarded Journal of Developmental Economics as well. Over the years, Christian Broda has published and been mentioned in a lot of articles on economic topics. Below are some of my favorites.

Japan Deflation – Writing in relation to the 2006 – 2007 deflation in Japan which is believed to have started around 1999, Christian Broda discusses how bad the inflation really is. He has discussed problems with Japan’s CPI, examined the differences between quality growth methodologies between US and Japan, and has also discussed the implications of this deflation for Japan. This article was published in October 2007 and has 37,659 reads.

Increasing Income Equality Promoted by Wal-Mart and China – In this article, Christian Broda disagrees with the notion that income inequality has risen as a result of globalization in the U.S. Using graphs, charts, and various economic concepts, Broda explains how the purchasing power of people who are poor has been increased because of Wal-Mart and China, especially in comparison to the rich. This article was published in July 2008 and has 59,050 reads.

2008 US Tax Rebates – In this article, Christian Broda discusses the impact of the 2008 rebates and tries to examine whether they served their purpose or not. In this article, he analyzes different areas affected by the rebates – such as the big spenders in the economy, goods and stores that benefited from the rebate, concentration of spending, and the implication of the rebates for the aggregate consumption. The article was published in August 2008 and has 58,588 reads.

Strengthening of US Dollar in 2010 – This article, which was published in 2009, is one of the most popular publications by Christian Broda. It has a total of 61,739 reads. It predicts that USD will strengthen in 2010, even though in 2009, it is deprecating.

In all these articles, Christian Broda uses simple concepts to reach great conclusions about the economic developments occurring not just in United States but all over the world.
