For the Record: Anne O. Krueger, Former Top IMF Official, Joins SAIS Economic Faculty


By Felisa Neuringer Klubes

The School of Advanced International Studies has appointed Anne O. Krueger as a professor in the International Economics Program. She most recently held the International Monetary Fund's No. 2 leadership position as first deputy managing director from September 2001 to August 2006.

Krueger will join Johns Hopkins this spring and start teaching in the fall, covering such topics as international trade, finance and economic development.

Krueger's distinguished career in academia and policy has spanned more than five decades. Prior to the IMF, she was the Herald L. and Caroline L. Ritch Professor in Humanities and Sciences in Stanford University's Economics Department. She also was the founding director of Stanford's Center for Research on Economic Development and Policy Reform and a Hoover Institution senior fellow. Prior to joining Stanford, she taught at the University of Minnesota and Duke University and held visiting professorships at numerous other universities around the world.

"We are honored that Professor Krueger has chosen to make SAIS her home--to enjoy the collegiality of our faculty, the curiosity of our students and the wonderful opportunities for collaboration on research with our neighbors on Massachusetts Avenue, including the Council on Foreign Relations, Brookings Institution and Peterson Institute for International Economics," said SAIS Dean Jessica P. Einhorn. "SAIS graduates are known for their excellent training in international economics, and Professor Krueger will add luster to that high reputation."

From 1982 to 1986, Krueger was the World Bank's vice president for economics and research. She is a distinguished fellow and past president of the American Economics Association; a member of the National Academy of Sciences, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and the American Philosophical Society; and a senior research associate of the National Bureau of Economic Research.

A recipient of a number of economic prizes and awards, she has published extensively on international trade theory and policy, policy reform in developing countries, the role of multilateral institutions in the international economy and the political economy of trade policy. Recent books edited or co-edited by Krueger include Reforming India's Economic, Financial and Fiscal Policies; Latin American Macroeconomic Reform: The Second Stage; and Economic Policy Reform and the Indian Economy.

Krueger received her bachelor's degree in economics from Oberlin College and her doctorate in economics from the University of Wisconsin.
