Maurice Obstfeld é o novo economistas-chefe do FMI

The International Monetary Fund Monday named Maurice Obstfeld, a widely respected economist known for his work on how policies spill over into the global economy, as the emergency-lender’s next chief economist.

Mr. Obstfeld, a University of California, Berkeley, professor and a member of the White House’s Council of Economic Advisers, will replace Olivier Blanchard in September.

The 63-year-old will give the IMF high-powered intellectual horsepower on an issue the fund has been trying to expand upon in the wake of the financial crisis: how economic policies of one economy affect others around the globe. He is the co-author of two influential textbooks used at the top universities around the world–Foundations of International Macroeconomics and International Economics, as well as scores of papers and research articles on financial crises, exchange rates, monetary policy and global capital markets.
