David Levy is a nationally recognized economist and forecaster. With over three decades of professional forecasting experience, he is a sought-after expert, respected for his accuracy and his unique approach to assessing economic conditions -- the Profits Perspective.
Levy is chairman and managing partner of the independent Jerome Levy Forecasting Center in Mount Kisco, NY, a provider of macroeconomic consulting services. Clients include commercial firms and major hedge funds. He coauthors the monthly Levy Forecast - the nation's oldest newsletter devoted exclusively to forecasting and analyzing economic conditions.
A third generation family member to head the firm, Levy is one of few economists to have successfully forecast the financial meltdowns that accompanied each of the last three recessions, including the financial collapse of 2007-2009. He is among an even smaller group who successfully profited on investments based on those forecasts. Most recently, he achieved large gains for investors in the Levy Forecast Fund from 2004 to 2009.
Levy has given briefings, consultations, and testimony to members of Congress, administration officials, and Federal Reserve governors. He was appointed by President Clinton in 1997 to the Commission to Study Capital Budgeting.
He is frequently quoted in the press and has appeared on numerous television networks, including Bloomberg, CNBC, Fox, and NBC.
Levy is the author of many articles and coauthor, with S Jay Levy, of Profits and the Future of American Society (HarperCollins). He graduated from Williams College Phi Beta Kappa with a B.A. in mathematics and holds an M.B.A. from the Columbia University School of Business.
