The Return of Pointless Panic: An Economic Horror Story - Christopher Thornberg

Dr. Christopher Thornberg is a founding partner of Beacon Economics, LLC and widely considered to be one of California's leading economic forecasters.  An expert in economic forecasting, regional development, real estate dynamics, and labor markets, he was one of the earliest and most adamant predictors of the housing market crash and of the economic recession that has followed.  In 2008, he was appointed chief economist to the office of California State Controller John Chiang, and chair of the Controller's Council of Economic Advisors.  He also serves on the advisory board of Paulson & Co. Inc., one of Wall Street's most successful hedge funds.

Widely quoted in the media, Thornberg has appeared on NBC's The Today Show, ABC's Nightline, CNN, FOX News Channel, MSNBC, NPR, and is regularly quoted in major national and California dailies including the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, the Washington Post, and the Los Angeles Times. Additionally, he serves on the editorial board of Pepperdine University's Graziadio School of Business and Management's quarterly peer-reviewed publication, Graziadio Business Report.

He has also testified before the US Congress House Committee on Financial Services on municipal debt issues. Thornberg has been involved in a number of special studies measuring the effect of important events on the economy, including the NAFTA treaty, the California electricity crisis, port security, California's water transfer programs, and the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.

A highly sought-after speaker, Thornberg offers insight on major economic events and trends and their larger implications.
