About Robert Kuttner

, Economic and Financial Journalist

In September 2008, veteran economic and financial journalist Robert Kuttner published a prophetic book predicting the financial crash and Barack Obama’s election, and pointing to the recovery program needed to revive America. In Obama’s Challenge: America’s Economic Crisis and the Power of a Transformative Presidency, Kuttner argues there is no middle ground. Obama will either be “a great president or a failed president.” Obama’s Challenge marks Kuttner’s eighth book in what has proven a distinguished career with positions as columnist for Business Week for 20 years, national staff writer for The Washington Post during the Watergate era, national policy correspondent for the New England Journal of Medicine, chief investigator for the US Senate Banking Committee, columnist for Boston Globe, as well as teaching stints at Brandeis and Harvard. His World View presentation is “The Challenge of Rescuing the Financial System.”
