The U.S. Chamber of Commerce has hired Curtis Dubay as senior economist to oversee its analysis of the U.S. and global economies. Dubay joined the Chamber on Monday, Jan. 6.
“We are thrilled to welcome Curtis. Our members will benefit from his keen insights on how smart sensible policies can stimulate economic growth and American job creation,” said Neil Bradley, Executive Vice President and Chief Policy Officer at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. “We also look forward to how he can advance our indices and other economic analysis products that tell compelling stories of how our economy is responding to policy shifts, business trends, and geopolitical factors.”
In recent years, the U.S. Chamber has launched the USG + U.S. Chamber Commercial Construction Index, the Assessment of Business Cyber Risk (Powered by FICO), the RSM US Middle Market Index, and the MetLife & U.S. Chamber Small Business Index to regularly take stock of these sectors of the economy. Late last year, the Chamber began issuing the Worker Availability Ratio to analyze the state of the U.S. labor market and worker availability.
For the last three years, Dubay has served as Senior Economist at the American Bankers Association modeling the economic impact of legislation like tax reform on banks, as well as closely monitoring broad economic trends. Previously, he served as a Research Fellow on tax and economic policy at the Heritage Foundation covering the implications of policy on the American economy. There he was regarded for his deep tax policy knowledge, testifying before Congress, and he was regularly cited and quoted in national news outlets.
Earlier in his career, Dubay worked in transfer pricing at PwC in Atlanta and as a Senior Economist at the Tax Foundation. Dubay holds an M.A. in Economics from the University of Connecticut and a B.A. in Economics from the University of Richmond.
