BIOGRAPHY

Ashoka Mody is a highly experienced international policy maker and commentator. He is currently Charles and Marie Robertson Visiting Professor in International Economic Policy at the Woodrow Wilson School, Princeton University.

He is the author of EuroTragedy: A Drama in Nine Acts (2018), a groundbreaking account of the history of the Euro. He argues that the adoption of the single currency will continue to haunt the continent, resulting in economic crises and political discontent, especially along cracks in the Italian economy. For a liberal order to flourish once more in Europe, ties between nations must be loosened, not increasingly centralised.

Before Princeton, Mody was Deputy Director in the International Monetary Fund’s Research and European Departments. He was responsible for the IMF’s Article IV consultations with Germany, Ireland, Switzerland, and Hungary, and also for the design of Ireland's financial rescue programme.

Prior to this, at the World Bank, his management positions included those in Project Finance and Guarantees and in the Prospects Group, where he coordinated and was principal author of the Global Development Finance Report of 2001.

He has advised governments worldwide on developmental and financial projects and policies, while writing extensively for policy and scholarly audiences. He is also a Senior Non-Resident Fellow at the Centre for Financial Studies, Frankfurt.
