Lawrence H. Summers, one of America’s leading economists, was Treasury Secretary in the Clinton Administration, Director of the White House National Economic Council in the Obama Administration, President of Harvard University and Chief Economist of the World Bank. In various capacities, he has played a key role in addressing the major financial crises of the past three decades. See his bio here.
