About me

Anil Kashyap’s research focuses on financial intermediation and regulation, the Japanese economy, price setting, and monetary policy. His research has won him numerous awards, including a Sloan Research Fellowship, the Nikkei Prize for Excellent Books in Economic Sciences, and a Senior Houblon-Norman Fellowship from the Bank of England (twice).  As of October 1, 2016 he is an external member of the Bank of England’s Financial Policy Committee.

Prior to joining the Chicago Booth faculty in 1991, Kashyap spent three years as an economist for the Board of Governors for the Federal Reserve System. He currently works as a consultant for the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago and as a research associate for the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER). He serves on the Board of Directors of the Bank of Italy’s Einaudi Institute of Economics and Finance, is a member of the Squam Lake Group and serves on the International Monetary Fund’s Advisory Group on the development of a macro-prudential policy framework.

Kashyap is also one of the academic members of the Bellagio Group (whose non-academic members consist of the Deputy Central Bank Governors and Vice Ministers of Finance of the G7 countries). This experience, along with his research and other consulting and advising to central banks and finance ministries around the world, has helped him create his two unique elective courses, “Understanding Central Banks” and “The Analytics of Financial Crises.”

Kashyap is a member of both the American Economic Association (AEA) and American Finance Association, and is on the faculty oversight Board of the Chicago Booth’s Initiative on Global Markets and a co-founder of the US Monetary Policy Forum.

He regularly speaks on the financial crisis, Japan, the global economy, and the direction of economic policy.
