Juergen Stark‘s Biography


Jürgen Stark is a leading German economist, and from 2006-2011 was a key member of the Executive Board of the European Central Bank (ECB). At the ECB he was responsible for economics and monetary analysis, and was often referred to as the bank’s “Chief Economist”, although this was not his official title.

Jürgen left the ECB because of his fundamental disagreement with the bank’s controversial government bond-buying programme, although the ECB announced his resignation as being for “personal reasons”.

From 1978-98 he held senior economic policy positions in the German federal government, and from 1998-2006 he served two consecutive terms as Vice President of Germany’s Bundesbank, acting as President of the Bank in 2004.

Jürgen draws on his extensive experience in the German Ministries of Finance and Economics and at the ECB to speak on the future of the euro, European finance and economics, financial stability and the global economy.
