King Building, 239 10 North Professor Street, Oberlin, OH 44074

"How Financial Innovations and Accelerators Drive U.S. Consumption Booms and Busts," will be presented by John V. Duca of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas and the Danforth-Lewis Professor of Economics at Oberlin.

John V. Duca leads and conducts research in macroeconomics and finance for the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas since 1991. He has given numerous briefings on the economy to the bank’s president and board of directors. Duca has published more than 75 articles on money, credit, wages and housing in scholarly journals and bank publications. Much of this research analyzes how innovations have altered economic relationships relevant to the macroeconomy and monetary policy.

From 1986 to 1991, Duca was a staff economist at the Federal Reserve Board, where he briefed former chairmen Alan Greenspan and Paul Volcker and other Fed policymakers. Additionally, he was a part-time lecturer at the University of Maryland and a part-time lecturer at Southern Methodist University.

He is also a vice president of the International Banking, Economics, and Finance Association. He holds a BA from Yale University and a PhD in economics from Princeton University. Duca will begin teaching at Oberlin College in spring 2018.
