Danny Quah

Dean and Li Ka Shing Professor in Economics, Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, NUS

Danny Quah is Dean and Li Ka Shing Professor in Economics at the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, NUS. His current research takes an economic approach to world order, studying its supply and demand: on the one hand, what international system the world’s superpowers provide, and on the other, what world order the global community needs.

 

Danny uses this to recast analysis of global power shifts, the rise of the east, regional order, and models of global power relations.

 

Danny 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”. Danny gave the third LSE-NUS lecture in 2013, and TEDx talks in 2016, 2014, and 2012. Danny 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.

 

Danny studied at Princeton, Minnesota, and Harvard.
