Charles Dumas (economist)

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki

Charles Dumas is a British author[1] and economist[2]. He currently works as TS Lombard's Chief Economist.[3]

In terms of his career, he has worked as an investment banker and a journalist, as well as being an economist.[4]

As a writer, he has written several books including 'The Bill from the China Shop' (2006), 'Globalisation Fractures: How Major Nations' Interests are now in Conflict' (2010) and 'Populism and Economics' (2018).[5] Additionally, he has worked for The Economist as a journalist and has written numerous freelance articles.[4]


In 1968, Dumas joined the Conservative Research Department covering tax reform and treasury for three years. He then worked at The Economist as a journalist for a further three years. In 1974 he joined General Motors as a European economist. After six years he moved to JP Morgan International Economics and worked in Capital Markets and then in M&A until 1992. He worked at Kilda Investments for three years until 1995, followed by two years at the London School of Economics[4]. In 1998, he joined Lombard Street Research, which later merged with Trusted Sources to become TS Lombard[6]. Charles became the Chief Economist at Lombard Street Research in 2005[7].

Dumas' most notable forecast was of the GFC in 2006-07, based on the savings-glut concept he had originated in 2004. One of his most notable subsequent calls was for only weak recovery from the financial crisis in 2010 - 2015, specifically because the Chinese recovery was dependent on policies that would cause financial problems and radically slower growth, and that energy and commodity prices would have to fall substantially.[8] In 2011, Charles forecast the return to American primacy in the world economy, and in 2016 he forecast that the US would recover from its slowdown, and would not relapse into recession.[9]
