Ben Herzon, Ph.D.

Executive Director, Macroeconomic Advisers by IHS Markit

Dr. Ben Herzon is an executive director at Macroeconomic Advisers by IHS Markit, focusing on GDP forecasts.
Known as the current-quarter Guru of Macroeconomic Advisers, Dr. Herzon focuses much of his efforts on translating recent trends in high-frequency data into a near-term forecast of GDP growth with high statistical precision. That includes directing the analysis of the data, authoring data commentaries, running the MA current-quarter tracking system, designing and maintaining a population-weighted snowfall database and conducting other research that requires a heavy dose of statistical horsepower. In addition, he writes portions of the forecast reports and conducts and reports research on a variety of macro topics. He joined the company in April 1998, a year prior to receiving his Ph.D. in economics from Washington University. His research there focused tracing the effects of monetary policy shocks through various industrial sectors, employing BEA's input-output accounts and time-series econometric techniques. He is a member and previously served as president of the St. Louis Gateway Chapter of NABE.
