About the speaker

Leszek Balcerowicz graduated with distinction from the Foreign Trade Faculty at the Central School of Planning and Statistics in Warsaw, earned an M.B.A. at St. John's University in New York, and a Ph.D. in economics from the Warsaw School of Economics. Having served as both finance minister and deputy prime minister of Poland during key transitional years, as well as president of the Polish National Bank, he oversaw a sweeping program of economic reform as his country successfully transitioned to a market economy. In 2005, President Aleksander Kwaśniewski awarded Balcerowicz with the country's highest decoration, the Order of the White Eagle, for his contribution to Poland's economic transformation. He is currently a member of the group of trustees of the Institute of International Finance and professor of economics at the Warsaw School of Economics.
