With UHERO, I prepare forecasts and analysis for the US, global, and Hawaii economies, including impacts of federal and local policies, international linkages, and structural change.


I provide expert insights into the US and global economies, emerging trends, and industry implications, drawing on several decades analyzing and forecasting. My talks are dynamic and accessible, with vital information participants can put to use.


I specialize in macroeconomics and the global economy, particularly the study of the US and its links to Asia, macroeconomic policies, global value chain production arrangements, demographic change, and patterns of international trade and finance.



I am UHERO Senior Research Fellow and Professor Emeritus of the University of Hawaii at Manoa. I have published extensively on the U.S., Asian, and global economies, and I have more than thirty years of experience speaking to diverse audiences about the economic outlook and contemporary policy challenges. I am a LinkedIn Top Voice and member of the National Speakers Association.
