Atif Mian is the John H. Laporte Jr. Class of 1967 Professor of Economics, Public Policy and Finance, and Director of the Julis-Rabinowitz Center for Public Policy and Finance at the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, at Princeton University.

Professor Mian’s research has provided insight into the role of household debt and credit supply, both before and after the 2008 crisis. His book with Amir Sufi (University of Chicago), House of Debt (2014), explores the role of household debt in precipitating the crisis, its resolution and what needs to be done.

Professor Mian visited the Reserve Bank in Wellington in December 2017. Özer Karagedikli and Anella Munro, from the Economics Department of the Reserve Bank, interviewed him.
