Todd Buchholz “lights up economics with a wickedly sparkling wit,” says the Associated Press. He recently jousted with James Carville and Ben Stein, and Successful Meetings Magazine named him one of the “21 Top Speakers for the 21st Century.” His editorials in the Wall Street Journal and commentaries on PBS correctly forecast the 2001 slowdown in the U.S., and the 2008 pop in commodity prices. The New York Times has turned to him to decipher terrorist threats and the job market. BusinessWeek raved about his book "Market Shock", which warned of the quicksand facing the stock market. Buchholz entertains his audiences and shows them how to thrive in a challenging economy, while gearing up for future prosperity.
A former director of economic policy at the White House, a managing director of the $15 billion Tiger hedge fund, and an award-winning economics teacher at Harvard, Buchholz targets his entertaining remarks to the cutting edge of economics, finance, and business strategy. He has advised President Bush, and is a frequent commentator on ABC News, PBS, and CBS, and recently hosted his own special on CNBC. Buchholz has debated such luminaries as Lester Thurow and Nobel Laureate Joseph Stiglitz. He is Co-Founder and Managing Director of Two Oceans Management, LLC and was a fellow at Cambridge University in 2009.
He has authored numerous books that have been translated into a dozen languages and are used in universities worldwide, the likes of which include Harvard, Duke and Princeton. "Market Shock: 9 Economic and Social Upheavals that Will Shake Our Financial Future", was released to rave reviews and dubbed “outstanding” by the Wall Street Journal. Buchholz is also author of "The Price of Prosperity: Why Rich Nations Fail and How to Renew Them," and the best-selling "New Ideas from Dead Economists", "New Ideas from Dead CEOs", "From Here to Economy", and "Lasting Lessons from the Corner Office", which were lavishly praised by The New York Times and Financial Times. "Rush: Why You Need and Love the Rat Race" was named by Publishers Weekly as a “top ten” book for 2011.
Buchholz is a contributing editor at Worth magazine, where he writes the “Global Markets” column, and he has penned articles for the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Forbes, and Reader’s Digest. He delivered a lecture at the White House entitled “Clarity, Honesty and Modesty in Economics,” and has been a keynote speaker before such groups as Microsoft, IBM, Goldman Sachs and the US Chamber of Commerce.
Before joining Tiger in 1996, Todd Buchholz was President of the G7 Group, Inc., an international consulting firm, whose clientele included many of the top securities firms, investment banks and money managers in New York, London, and Tokyo. From 1989 to 1992 he served at the White House as a Director for Economic Policy. Todd Buchholz won the Allyn Young Teaching Prize at Harvard and holds advanced degrees in economics and law from Cambridge and Harvard. He also holds several engineering and design patents and is a co-producer of the Broadway smash “Jersey Boys.”
