劳伦斯 H 萨默斯

Lawrence H. Summers

美国前财长;哈佛前校长

作为美国经济和国际金融的权威,从全球经济到教育,再到美国在世界上的角色,萨默斯的言论总会引人关注。他担任过奥巴马政府的国家经济委员会主席,克林顿政府的财政部长,哈佛大学校长和世界银行首席经济学家。在萨默斯担财政部长期间,美国经济经历了有史以来时间最长的持续增长。

过去50年中,他也是唯一一位在卸任时国家预算仍然保持盈余的财政部长。在奥巴马政府任职期间,萨默斯是经济决策制定的核心。面临最紧迫的经济讨论时,他仍然是人们最先想到的求助对象。

An expert on domestic economics and a leading authority on international finance, Larry Summers is one of the most distinguished voices on issues ranging from the global economy to education to the role of the United States in the world. Prior to serving in the Obama Administration as Director of the White House National Economic Council, Dr. Summers was Secretary of the Treasury during the Clinton Administration, President of Harvard University, and Chief Economist of the World Bank. Dr. Summers' tenure at the U.S. Treasury coincided with the longest period of sustained economic growth in U.S. history. He is the only Treasury Secretary in the last half century to have left office with the national budget in surplus. During his tenure in the Obama Administration, Larry Summers emerged as a key economic decision-maker and continues to be called upon as the number one resource for the most pressing economic debates of the day.
