Dan White is the director of public sector research at Moody’s Analytics. In this role he oversees economic research with an emphasis on public policy and municipal market impacts.

Dan’s most recent research has focused on public policy responses to the Great Recession, particularly ways in which states and local governments can best prepare for the next recession. He and his team have performed pioneering research into the ways that policymakers can use stress-testing to ensure that public budgets are adequately protected from changes in the business cycle.

Dan works closely with a number of governments in an advisory role and teaches classes on economics and public finance at Villanova University. He regularly presents to clients and conferences and has been featured in a number of print, radio, and televised media outlets ranging from CNN to the Wall Street Journal.

Before joining Moody’s Analytics, Dan worked as a financial economist for the state of New Mexico where he forecast revenues and analyzed a wide range of policy issues concentrated around economic development, public investment, and debt management. Dan holds an MA in economics as well as undergraduate degrees in finance and international business from New Mexico State University.
