About Andrew Busch - Renowned Political Economist, Author, Keynote Speaker:

Andrew Busch's unconventional path to finance, politics and the economy has taught him that the big picture is filled in by small details - and requires unconventional thinking to see them. He was number six out of seven kids that taught him to scrap, shout - and fight for the last piece of food at dinner. He brought this determination to his career and to his insights into the world. Before he went into finance, he painted street curbs, he mowed lawns, he worked construction - and he ran his own painting company.

With all of the forces creating turmoil today, now is the time to embrace opportunities of the future. Andy works with global organizations to build an understanding to the potential of the future - wherein audience members will be enlightened to move forward with confidence.

In finance, Andy traded currencies and wrote research on the markets during the 1985 Plaza Accord; the 1998 Russian default - and to the 2008 global financial crisis. He’s advised major mutual funds, hedge funds, U.S. Treasury Secretaries - and the White House. In 2017, he became the nation’s first Chief Market Intelligence Officer (CMIO) at the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC). As CMIO, he was charged with improving and enhancing the government’s understanding of the markets. Andy created and directed a new research group, Market Intelligence Branch (MIB) - for the agency. He also connected with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the U.S. Treasury, the Federal Reserve Board, the Federal Reserve of New York and the White House.

After a career of 35+ years, he brings his perspective, insights and energy for fighting for the last piece of dinner to as many people and organizations as possible. Andy breaks down the economy, politics and technology to simplify the complexity and ensure that everyone can understand how they impact business and lives. As a member of a large family and a husband/father of his own large family - Andy knows the importance of seeing through difficult, chaotic times towards the opportunities the future holds.
