Economist - Speaker - Author

Paul London is a Washington DC-based political economist who has operated, taught, and written for decades at the intersections of history, politics, and commerce. A frequent writer and public speaker on inflation and related economic topics, Dr. London’s talks and articles on price competition, the job market, and monetary and fiscal policy are clear, expert, and thought-provoking. They deal succinctly with the most impactful issues facing businesses and policy makers of both political parties today.

Speaking Topics

Dr. London speaks in a voice that is both authoritative and unique based on 40 years of experience in federal policy making in Washington, and navigating economic issues in Europe and Asia. This experience has helped private sector clients develop business opportunities, and has given them a broader understanding of economic and political realities on topics including:

  • THE FEDERAL RESERVE and how monetary and anti-inflation policies often fail to take into account dramatic and observable changes in the structure of the economy since the inflation-prone post-World War II period 

  • BUDGET POLICY and why the US must focus on increasing public and private investment in a fast-changing world with new hard-charging rivals

  • ECONOMIC COMPETITION which has been central to American success since the country’s founding, and must continue to be if the country is to meet new challenges

  • EVOLVING CONSUMER AND BUSINESS BEHAVIOR as myriad economic interests try to adjust to rapid changes in technology, job markets, the rise of China and Asia, the war in Ukraine, and other international developments

  • AMERICAN ENERGY POLICY and the global market forces and domestic political pressures that have shaped it since the 1970s, including renewable energy policies, energy prices, and environmental standards

  • REGULATIONS AND ECONOMIC GROWTH and the historic role of labor unions and price-fixing cartels before the 1980s that provide lessons for today's more flexible economy

  • THE AMERICAN HEALTHCARE SYSTEM and the country’s choice of a dramatically decentralized and expensive system dominated by the role of insurance

Paul, I had a wonderful time with your whole visit. Everyone at Metro Sales loved your talk and the wisdom and experience you could share with us. Your talk with the small lunch group was great and then you kept 70 people interested, alert and asking questions until it was time to stop.

"This policy of supplying, by opposite and rival interests, the defect [lack] of better motives, might be traced through the whole system of human affairs, private as well as public."
