The Agora Economics Roundtable 2017


Featuring a Private Question and Answer Session With

Dr. Alan Greenspan

Alan Greenspan served five terms as chairman of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System. He originally took office as chairman on August 11, 1987, to fill an unexpired term as a member of the Board of Governors. His last term ended on January 31, 2006. He was appointed chairman by four different presidents.

Greenspan was born in New York City. He received his bachelor’s (summa cum laude), master’s, and doctoral degrees in economics, all from New York University. Before receiving his doctorate, he studied economics at Columbia University in the early 1970s under Arthur Burns, who would later become chairman of the Board of Governors.

Greenspan’s first job, in 1948, was with the National Industrial Conference Board, a nonprofit organization where he analyzed demand for steel, aluminum and copper. From 1954 to 1974 and from 1977 to 1987, Greenspan was chairman and president of Townsend-Greenspan & Co., Inc., an economic consulting firm in New York City. From 1974 to 1977, he served as chairman of the President’s Council of Economic Advisers under President Gerald Ford, and from 1981 to 1983, as chairman of the National Commission on Social Security
