Brad W. Setser has joined the Council as a fellow in the Maurice R. Greenberg Center for Geoeconomic Studies, focusing on the foreign policy consequences of capital surpluses in East Asia and oil-exporting states and expanding the center’s Web presence.

He served in the U.S. Treasury Department from 1997 to 2001, where he worked extensively on reform of the international financial architecture, sovereign debt restructurings, and U.S. policy toward the IMF. He ended his time at the Treasury as the acting director of its office of international monetary and financial policy. Setser is a Council term member.
