Uri Dadush is a senior associate and the director of the International Economics Program at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. He focuses on trends in the global economy and is currently also tracking developments in the eurozone crisis.
He was educated at Seaford College in England (1963-1967), the Hebrew University of Jerusalem (BA, Economics and International Relations; MA, Economics), and Harvard University (PhD, Business Economics).
Dadush is also interested in the impact of the rise of developing countries for financial flows, trade and migration, and the associated economic policy and governance questions. He is the co-author of four recent books and reports: “Inequality in America: Facts, Trends and International Perspective” (Brookings, 2012), “Juggernaut: How Emerging Markets Are Reshaping Globalization” (Carnegie, 2011), “Currency Wars” (Carnegie, 2011), and “Paradigm Lost: The Euro in Crisis” (Carnegie, 2010).

(1982–1986), now Global Insight; and a consultant with McKinsey and Co. in Europe. In the public sector, he served as the World Bank’s director of international trade and before that as director of economic policy. He also served concurrently as the director of the Bank’s world economy group, leading the preparation of the Bank’s flagship reports on the international economy for over eleven years.
