Kenneth Rogoff is Maurits C. Boas Professor at Harvard University, and former chief economist at the IMF. His influential 2009 book with Carmen Reinhart, This Time Is Different: Eight Centuries of Financial Folly, shows the remarkable quantitative similarities across time and countries in the roots and aftermath of debt and financial crises. Rogoff is also known for his pioneering work on central bank independence, and on exchange rates. He is co-author of the widely-used graduate text, Foundations of International Macroeconomics. His 2016 book The Curse of Cash looks at the past, present and future of money. His recent research shows how historical evidence on growth, inflation and interest rates, can help inform contentious debates on debt sustainability and asset price valuations, and he has done widely influential work on China’s economy that has been widely covered in the press. His monthly syndicated column on global economic issues is published in over 50 countries.  

Rogoff is an elected member of the National Academy of Sciences and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. He has long ranked among the top ten most cited economists, and is an international grandmaster of chess.
