About Lars Christensen

Christensen is founder and owner of Markets and Money Advisory and is a senior fellow at London’s Adam Smith Institute. He has over 20 years’ experience in government and banking and specializes in international economy, emerging markets and monetary policy.

He has served as a speaking partner to multinational companies and financial institutions regarding global financial markets, the global economy and geopolitics. Christensen also has served as an economic policy analyst at the Danish Ministry of Economic Affairs (now the Ministry of Economic and Business Affairs). As head of emerging markets research at Danske Bank in Copenhagen, he authored numerous path-breaking economic reports, particularly covering Central and Eastern Europe.

Among his writing credits, Christensen co-authored the “Geyser Crisis” in 2006, wrote Milton Friedman—a Pragmatic Revolutionary, blogs about monetary policy at and has contributed to numerous books and articles. He is also credited with coining the term “market monetarism,” a new school of economic thought that advocates for central banks to target the nominal GDP level (NGDP level targeting).

He has been widely quoted by most international financial media—Financial Times, The Telegraph, Bloomberg and Reuters, among others.

Christensen earned a master’s degree in economics from the University of Copenhagen.
