“John is someone I always check with whenever I’m working on an important assignment ... everything from trying to loosen tight U. S. monetary policy in the 1990s to the supply-demand imbalances in energy caused by the unwise energy policies of both the Clinton and Bush Administrations. John brings a clarity of thought to his work that few can match in our industry. He is both a thinker and a doer—which explains why he has built a record of successful results throughout his career.”
