Hello, I'm Andy Busch
About the Economist, Author and Man
Andy’s unconventional path to finance, politics and the economy has taught him that the big picture is filled in by small details and requires unconventional thinking to see them. He was number six out of seven kids that taught him to scrap, shout and fight for the last piece of food at dinner. He brought this determination to his career and to his insights into the world. Before he went into finance, he painted street curbs, he mowed lawns, he worked construction, and he ran his own painting company.
For all his career, he's been on the front lines of the economy and the markets. Andy traded currencies and wrote research on the markets during the 1985 Plaza Accord; the 1998 Russian default; and to the 2008 global financial crisis. He’s advised major mutual funds, hedge funds, US Treasury Secretaries and the White House. In 2017, he became the nation’s first Chief Market Intelligence Officer at the CFTC. He provided economic and market briefings to the SEC, the US Treasury, the Federal Reserve Board, the Federal Reserve of New York and the White House. He is an outside economic advisor to the White House during this time economic uncertainty and challenges caused by the coronavirus.
After a career of 35 plus years, he brings his perspective, insights and energy for fighting for the last piece of dinner to as many people and organizations as possible. Andy breaks down the economy, politics and technology to simplify the complexity and ensure that everyone can understand how they impact business and jobs. As a member of a large family and a husband/father of his own large family, Andy knows the importance of seeing through difficult, chaotic times towards the opportunities the future holds.
As a highly in-demand keynote speaker, Andy has had the privilege of speaking to a wide range of organizations, trade associations and firms including the American Bankers Association, Newfield Exploration, Bank of Montreal, Bank of America, Alternative and Direct Investment Securities Association, ACES Power Marketing, AgStar Financial Services, Fifth Third Bank, and Institutional Investor to name a few.
