Lakshman Achuthan, ECRI
Co-Founder and Chief Operations Officer

Presentation: "Economic Cycles - Where Are We Heading?"

Lakshman Achuthan is co-founder and chief operations officer of ECRI, an independent organization focused on business cycle analysis and forecasting in the tradition established by Geoffrey H. Moore.

He is also a member of the NYC Economic Advisory Panel and the Levy Institute’s Board of Governors, and serves as trustee on a few non-profit boards.

Lakshman co-authored "Beating the Business Cycle: How to Predict and Profit from Turning Points in the Economy" published by Doubleday.

Lakshman calls himself a “business cycle researcher” as opposed to an “economist” because ECRI doesn’t use econometric models.
