Todd Buchholz Biography

Economist Todd Buchholz “lights up economics with a wickedly sparkling wit,” says the Associated Press. The former White House senior economic advisor, Tiger hedge fund managing director and best-selling author has jousted with such personalities as James Carville and Ben Stein. His lively and informative speaking engagements have earned him a place in Successful Meetings Magazine’s “21 Top Speakers for the 21st Century" and his best-selling books on economics and financial markets have been widely translated and are taught in universities worldwide.

As a frequent commentator on the state of the markets, Buchholz brings his experience as a former White House director of economic policy, a managing director of the $15 billion Tiger hedge fund, and a Harvard economics teacher to the cutting edge of economics, fiscal politics, finance and business strategy. Buchholz is a frequent guest on ABC News, PBS and CBS, and he recently hosted his own special on CNBC. Buchholz has debated such luminaries in the field as Lester Thurow and Nobel Laureate Joseph Stiglitz.

Before joining Tiger in 1996, Buchholz was President of the G7 Group, Inc, an international consulting firm whose clientele included many of the top securities firms, investment banks and money managers in New York, London and Tokyo, including Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley. His commentaries were closely read by officials at the Federal Reserve, Bundesbank and Bank of England. From 1989 to 1992, he served at the White House as a director for economic policy. Buchholz won the “Allyn Young Teaching Prize” at Harvard and holds advanced degrees in Economics and Law from Cambridge and Harvard. He was a fellow at Cambridge University in 2009, holds several engineering and design patents and is a co-producer of the Broadway smash "Jersey Boys."

Buchholz is the inventor of the Math Arrow, a mathematical matrix that makes numbers more intuitive to children. He is the CEO of Sproglit, LLC, which develops software and classroom materials based on the Math Arrow. Martin Cooper, widely recognized as the inventor of the cellular phone, has called the Math Arrow “ingenious.”

Buchholz has authored numerous critically acclaimed and best-selling books, many of which he has developed into successful lectures and speaking events. His books have been translated into a dozen languages and are used in universities worldwide, including at Harvard, Duke and Princeton. Buchholz is praised for his examination of economics, business and entrepreneurship in the context of global society.

"Market Shock: 9 Economic and Social Upheavals that Will Shake Our Financial Future," was released to rave reviews and dubbed “outstanding” by The Wall Street Journal. Buchholz has also published the best-selling "New Ideas from Dead Economists," "New Ideas from Dead CEOs," "From Here to Economy," and "Lasting Lessons from the Corner Office," which garnered high praise from The New York Times and Financial Times. Named by Publishers Weekly as a “top ten” book for 2011, his book "Rush: Why You Need and Love the Rat Race has been praised by the Financial Times," Toronto Globe & Mail, Los Angeles Times and the BBC, among many others. Buchholz has penned articles for The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, Forbes and Reader’s Digest.

Buchholz is widely sought for his depth of experience, sharp wit and honest, entertaining delivery. He puts global politics and financial markets into perspective and offers a positive understanding of the challenges and opportunities facing today’s markets.

An experienced media personality, Buchholz gave a lecture at the White House entitled “Clarity, Honesty and Modesty in Economics,” and has delivered keynote speeches before such influential corporate and financial institutions as Microsoft, IBM, Goldman Sachs and the United States Chamber of Commerce. He has served as a consulting advisor to the White House, Microsoft, Allstate, Goldman Sachs, IBM, SAP and Toyota, and he is routinely asked to provide perspective in newspapers such as The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times.

  • The Hope and Danger Behind World Politics

    Since September 11, 2001, the world has changed, looking even more dangerous than during the Cold War era when the Soviet Union aimed missiles at the U.S. In just a few weeks during the winter of 2011, the map of the Middle East turned upside down, reposing dictators and replacing them with ... who knows? Todd Buchholz takes his audience on a world tour to gauge the "hot spots" that threaten us. At the same time, though, we must appreciate the successes: the countries that have turned from dictatorships to democracies; the economies that have dumped communism for capitalism. Recently, The New York Times editorial page called on Buchholz to make sense of the terrorism threat. As a former "point man" for the White House during the Gulf War, Todd Buchholz shows his audience how to handle the risks while keeping hope alive in this expansive keynote speech presentation.

  • China: The Threat and the Opportunity

    Everyone knows China offers one billion potential customers. But China also provides one billion workers eager to compete with American workers.

  • New Ideas from Dead CEOs

    Todd Buchholz brings to life history's greatest CEOs -- from Steve Jobs to Ray Kroc to Akio Morita, Estee Lauder to Tom Watson Sr. -- and shows how their lives, leadership and lessons can inform and inspire us in today's chaotic marketplace. How did Sam Walton help create the "scissors economy" and go from being the owner of a single dime store to the CEO of Wal-Mart? How did Estee Lauder, a working-class woman from Queens, convince the shoppers at Saks to buy her cosmetics? How did the San Francisco earthquake of 1906 eventually lead to A.P. Giannini's success as America's greatest banker? In this speech, Buchholz answers these questions and shows today's business managers how to deploy their entrepreneurial secrets to benefit their companies in today's hyper-competitive global economy. He uses his experience as a White House economist, Harvard scholar, and Wall Street professional to show investors what kinds of CEOs to invest with and what kinds of companies to steer away from. In addition, Todd lays out a forecast for the economy and the financial markets. Audiences come away from this keynote presentation with a fresh understanding of the competitive pressures we face today, and a road map to finding success.
