Welcome, Christian Weller

posted by Elizabeth Warren

It is my special pleasure to welcome Dr. Christian Weller to Credit Slips. First the formal stuff:  Dr. Weller is an Associate Professor of Public Policy at the University of Massachusetts Boston, a research scholar at the Political Economy Research Institute at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, and a Senior Fellow at Center for American Progress. A trained economist, he has also worked in policy positions in the US and Germany and in banking in Germany, Belgium and Poland. 

Now the stuff about his important contributions: Christian's expertise is in the area of retirement income security, macroeconomics, money and banking, and international finance. His work is numbers driven, but it is also quite readable. Check out his work here and here

Finally, the stuff that makes him really interesting: Christian's ideas are well-grounded both in data and theory, but they are also fresh and powerful. He is one of the best lunch dates around.  His posts on Credit Slips will give us all a chance to visit with him. Welcome, Christian.

  • As a public service, the University of Illinois College of Law operates Bankr-L, an e-mail list on which bankruptcy professionals can exchange information. Bankr-L is administered by one of the Credit Slips bloggers, Professor Robert M. Lawless of the University of Illinois. Although Bankr-L is a free service, membership is limited only to persons with a professional connection to the bankruptcy field (e.g., lawyer, accountant, academic, judge). To request a subscription on Bankr-L, click here to visit the page for the list and then click on the link for "Subscribe." After completing the information there, please also send an e-mail to Professor Lawless ([email protected]) with a short description of your professional connection to bankruptcy. A link to a URL with a professional bio or other identifying information would be great.
