He formerly was chairman of Morgan Stanley Asia and the firm’s chief economist for the bulk of his 30-year career at Morgan Stanley, heading up a highly regarded team of economists around the world and currently focusing on the impact of Asia on the broader global economy.

Steve served on the research staff of the Federal Reserve Board and also was a research fellow at the Brookings Institution. He holds a Ph.D. in economics from New York University.
