Russell A. Green, Ph.D., is a Baker Institute nonresident fellow and a senior economist at the International Monetary Fund.
Green previously held the position of Will Clayton Fellow for International Economics at the Baker Institute. His research touched on U.S. dollar policy and exchange rate management more broadly. This work culminated in a book published by the Peterson Institute for International Economics, co-edited with Fred Bergsten, "International Monetary Cooperation: Lessons from the Plaza Accord after Thirty Years." Green's work also examined developmental challenges in India and the benefits of the NAFTA treaty.
Green spent four years in India as the U.S. Treasury Department’s first financial attaché to that country. His engagement in India primarily focused on financial market development, India’s macroeconomy and illicit finance, and also included diverse topics such as cross-border tax evasion and financing global climate change activities. He worked with counterparts in India’s government to develop the U.S.-India Economic and Financial Partnership, launched in 2009 by Indian Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee and U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner.
Green has also served as the deputy director of the U.S. Treasury’s Office of International Monetary Policy, where he led efforts to strengthen International Monetary Fund exchange rate policies and international reserve management. He started his tenure at Treasury in the Office of Quantitative Policy Analysis, focusing on emerging market vulnerabilities and debt sustainability analysis. His economic research has addressed bank regulation, financial liberalization, international reserve accumulation, bilateral investment treaties and the economics of international reproductive health. Green speaks Spanish and Japanese and holds a B.A. from Pomona College and a Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley.
