Danny Quah, Ph. D.

Li Ka Shing Professor of Economics Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy National University of Singapore

His current research takes an economic approach to world order, studying the supply and demand of world order: on the one hand, what international system the world's superpowers provide, and on the other, what world order the global community needs.

Quah uses this to recast analysis of global power shifts, the rise of the east, regional order, and models of global power relations.

Quah is the author of "The Global Economy's Shifting Centre of Gravity". He gave the third LSE-NUS lecture in 2013, TEDx talks in 2016, 2014, and 2012, and the Inaugural LSE Big Questions Lecture in 2011.

Quah was previously Assistant Professor of Economics at MIT, and then Professor of Economics and International Development, and Director of the Saw Swee Hock Southeast Asia Centre at LSE.

He also served as LSE’s Head of Department for Economics, and Council Member on Malaysia’s National Economic Advisory Council. Quah studied at Princeton, Minnesota, and Harvard."
