Swedish economist and Managing Director of Stein Brothers (UK), Gabriel Stein has been given the Honorary Title of Visiting Professor for the Department of Economics at Royal Holloway University of London.
Gabriel Stein has been at the helm of Stein Brothers – an Economics research and public affairs consultancy, for the past nine years. Stein has also worked as the Chief International Economist at Lombard Street Research, the Chief Economic Advisor to OMFIF (the Official Monetary and Financial Institutions Forum) and has had a stint with the Israeli Treasury.
Gabriel has written and commented extensively on topics such as the problems of monetary unions, demographics and pensions issues, broad money and credit flows and on sectoral financial balances. In 2005 he predicted that central bankers would lose their semi-divine status through failure to control asset-price bubbles, a forecast confirmed by the Great Recession of 2008-2010. He is a frequent speaker at international conferences and frequently appears on radio and television to comment on the world economy.
On receiving the title Gabriel Stein said, “I am deeply honoured by this association with an excellent university and look very much forward to continued cooperation with Royal Holloway.”
