Todd Buchholz JD BS
"Global Economist, Commentator and Policy-Maker"
Todd Buchholz Expertise: Finance • Economics • Business • Globalization • Strategy and Innovation
Fee Range: $15,000 to $20,000
Location: California
Todd Buchholz "lights up economics with a wickedly sparkling wit," says the Associated Press. He recently jousted with James Carville and Ben Stein, and Successful Meetings Magazine named him one of the "21 Top Speakers for the Twentieth Century." His editorials in the Wall Street Journal correctly forecast the 2001 slowdown in the U.S., and the New York Times has turned to him to decipher terrorist threats and the job market.

"Witty, iconoclastic and engaging" says the Wall Street Journal of Buchholz, while BusinessWeek raved about his book Market Shock, which warned of quicksand facing the stock market. He entertains his audiences, showing them how to thrive in a chaotic economy, while gearing up for future prosperity.
A former director of economic policy at the White House, a managing director of the $15 billion Tiger hedge fund, and an award-winning economics teacher at Harvard, Buchholz targets his entertaining remarks to the cutting edge of economics, finance, and business strategy. He has advised President Bush, and is a frequent commentator on ABC News, PBS, and CBS, and recently hosted his own special on CNBC. Buchholz has debated such luminaries as Lester Thurow, Robert Reich and Nobel Laureate Joseph Stiglitz. He is the Co-Founder of Enso Capital Management, LLC.

He has authored numerous books that have been translated into a dozen languages and are used in universities nationwide, the likes of which include Harvard, Brigham Young and Princeton. Market Shock: 9 Economic and Social Upheavals that Will Shake Our Financial Future, was released to rave reviews and dubbed "outstanding" by the Wall Street Journal. Buchholz is also author of the best-selling New Ideas from Dead Economists and From Here To Economy, which were lavishly praised by The New York Times and Financial Times. His newest book, Bringing the Jobs Home was released by Penguin in October 2004.

Buchholz is a contributing editor at Worth magazine, where he writes the "Global Markets" column, and he has penned articles for the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Forbes, and Reader's Digest. He delivered a lecture at the White House entitled "Clarity, Honesty and Modesty in Economics," and has been a keynote speaker before such groups as Microsoft, Citibank and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

Before joining Tiger in 1996, Buchholz was President of the G7 Group, Inc., an international consulting firm, whose clientele included many of the top securities firms, investment banks and money managers in New York, London, and Tokyo. From 1989 to 1992 he served at the White House as a Director for Economic Policy. Buchholz won the Allyn Young Teaching Prize at Harvard and holds advanced degrees in economics and law from Cambridge and Harvard. He also holds several engineering and design patents.

Speech Topic Descriptions:

Is the Economy Headed Higher -- or Off a Cliff?
The go-go days of the 1990s turned into the go-backwards days of the 2000's. What's next? How will Alan Greenspan keep the economy recovering? Will OPEC tighten the energy noose again? Can President Bush keep the international markets under control? Learn how the "scissors economy" opens up new business and investment opportunities. Today might be the very best-or the very worst-time to finance a loan. By "connecting the dots" of the world economy, Todd Buchholz will help you develop a timely vision for the economy and the stock market.

How To Compete in A Chaotic Economy
Never before have businesses felt so excruciating pressure to compete. While riding a roller coaster stock market, firms have struggled to raise prices, even when their costs go up. Loyal customers seem ready to jump to a competitor. How can your company or industry survive and thrive? What will Congress do to help or hurt your industry in the coming year? Learn how to anticipate the new trends that open up fresh opportunities for manufacturing, service and technology companies.

The Inside Story on the White House, the Fed and Congress
Former White House adviser Todd Buchholz takes you on a tour of Washington power centers. Who's pushing the buttons on economic policy and industry regulation? Is Alan Greenspan working hand in hand --or at odds-- with the Bush administration? Will the shenanigans in Washington make life easier or tougher for your company?

How Lawsuits Are Ruining America
Should fat people sue McDonalds? Why do class action lawyers get millions of dollars while their clients get useless coupons? The Wall Street Journal, the Brookings Institution and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce have all called on Todd Buchholz to make sense of the litigation epidemic. Let him show your audience how we all lose when lawsuit undermine companies, shareholders, and employees.

The Hope and Danger Behind World Politics
Since September 11 the world has changed, looking even more dangerous than during the Cold War era when the Soviet Union aimed missiles at the U.S. Todd Buchholz takes his audience on a world tour to gauge the "hot spots" that threaten us. At the same time, though, we must appreciate the successes: the countries that have turned from dictatorships to democracies; the economies that have dumped communism for capitalism. As a former "point man" for the White House during the Gulf War, Todd Buchholz shows his audience how to handle the risks while keeping hope alive. Recently, The New York Times editorial page called on Buchholz to make sense of the terrorism threat.
