Carl B. Weinberg
Chief Economist, High Frequency Economics
Dr. Carl B. Weinberg is the author of Notes on the Global Economy, a widely read publication that forecasts and analyzes global economic, market and policy developments outside the United States. He also authors Weekly Notes on China's Economy, a two-page report on China's key economic indicators and issues. Barron’s noted recently that Dr. Weinberg is "sought after as much for his provocative views on the global economies as for his deep experience."
Before founding High Frequency Economics in 1988, Dr. Weinberg served as Senior International Economist at Shearson Lehman Brothers, where he was involved in advisory projects in G-7 countries, Africa and Latin America. He also supported the capital markets activities of the firm as its Chief International Economist. From 1982 to 1984, he worked on restructuring bank loans to Latin American sovereign borrowers, representing the Bank of Montreal in multiyear restructuring negotiations on a dozen Bank Advisory Committees. He has also worked at the OECD in Paris, as a member of the economic forecasting unit.
From 1978 to 1981, he developed and co-authored the Wharton World Economic Model while serving as Director of Wharton Econometric Forecasting Associates in Philadelphia. He was also a researcher at the National Bureau of Economic Research, leading a global econometric modeling project aimed at understanding commodity price fluctuations. As an IBM Fellow in the mid-1970s, Dr. Weinberg established a European Research and Simulation Center at the IBM Scientific Center in Pisa, Italy. He was also a founding contributor to Project Link, an IMF and UN-affiliated econometric modeling group with which he is still affiliated.
Dr. Weinberg has taught economics at the European University Institute in Florence, the Wharton School and New York University, where he currently teaches a graduate course in international finance. Dr. Weinberg earned his Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Pennsylvania and is a graduate of Rutgers University.
