His papers have been published in all the top economics and finance journals, and he has served on the editorial board of the American Economic Review and the Journal of Finance. He has recently written a book which won the Goldman Sachs Book of the Year award entitled “Fault Lines: How Hidden Cracks Still Threaten the World Economy”.

A distinguished economist with an intrinsic respect for the many risks that face the global market, Dr. Rajan explains how adopting sound and responsible policies will prevent the next great financial crisis. In his Financial Times “Business Book of the Year,”“Fault Lines: How Hidden Fractures Still Threaten the World Economy” (2010), Dr. Rajan offered a prescient diagnosis of the economic and political consequences of growing inequality in industrial countries. He knows that the future need not be dark—opportunities and rewards await those with the patience and discipline to work for a better world.
