Keynote speaker Robert Mundell is an important character in the areas of Economics. He helped lay the groundwork which resulted in the initiatives that led to the European Currency and he has developed several important theories within the world of economics. Professor Mundell travels extensively to advise and speak on monetary policy, international economics and other finance and economics related topics.

Robert Mundell is a professor at Columbia University in New York, where he has been teaching economics since 1974. He was born in Canada, graduated with a degree from the University of British Columbia and did post-graduate work at the University of Washington and the London School of Economics before he went to M.I.T where he received his Ph.D. in Industrial Economics. He has taught at several universities and was a member of the staff of the International Monetary Fund coming to Columbia University.

Mundell has been an adviser to a number of international agencies and organizations as well as several governments, the United Nations, the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank, the European Commission, the Federal Reserve Board, the US Treasury, the Inter-American Development Bank, and companies and institutions throughout the world.

Professor Mundell is known as the father of the theory of optimum currency areas that helped lay the groundwork for the creation of the euro and prepared the first plan for a European currency in 1969. He pioneered the standard international (Mundell-Fleming) macroeconomic model, the theory of growth and inflation, the Mundell-Tobin effect and Supply-Side Economics and has worked extensively in Africa and the transition economies. His writings include several books on economics and over 100 articles in the scientific journals. He has also written extensively on international economics, economic theory, transition economies and the history of the international monetary system. Six volumes of his Collected Works were published in Chinese in 2004.

Mundell is a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Science, a Distinguished Fellow of the American Economic Association and past presidents of both the North American Economic and Financial Association and the International Atlantic Association. He is Honorary Professor at more than fifty universities in China and holds numerous honorary degrees from around the world. He is the Chairman of the Santa Colomba Group on International Monetary Reform in Siena, Italy, the Co-Chairman of the International Financial Forum in Beijing, the Permanent Advisor to the Beijing Nobel Forum and was Honorary Chairman of the Pearl Springs Grand Slam International Chess Tournaments in Nanjing, China. He is a Companion of the Order of Canada.

Mundell was awarded the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economics in 1999 “for his analysis of monetary and fiscal policy under different exchange rate regimes and his analysis of optimum currency areas.”

The citation read as follows:

“Robert Mundell has established the foundation for the theory which dominates practical policy considerations of monetary and fiscal policy in open economies. His work on monetary dynamics and optimum currency areas has inspired generations of researchers … constitute the core of teaching in international macroeconomics. Mundell’s research has had such a far-reaching and lasting impact because it combines formal – but still accessible – analysis, intuitive interpretation and results with immediate policy applications. Above all, Mundell chose his problems with uncommon – almost prophetic – accuracy in terms of predicting the future development of international monetary arrangements and capital markets.”
