Campbell Harvey: 'We need to act boldly'

Dealing with the global economic crisis isn’t easy for people managing the finances of small organizations. But it does offer opportunities for leadership, says Campbell R. Harvey of Duke’s Fuqua School of Business.


Campbell R. Harvey is the J. Paul Sticht Professor of International Business at the Fuqua School of Business at Duke University.

Harvey is an internationally recognized expert in portfolio management, asset allocation, the cost of capital and global risk management. He has been quoted widely in the media about the global financial crisis and has created a web page with resources and information as well as a blog.  He also is founding director of the Duke University/CFO Magazine Global Business Outlook Survey, which asks 1,275 CFOs from a broad range of global public and private companies about their expectations for the economy.

In December, Campbell spoke at “Leadership Challenges for Christian Institutions in a Time of Financial Crisis,” a convening in Durham, N.C., organized by Leadership Education at Duke Divinity.
