Jacques Attali


Jacques Attali

Jacques Attali (born 1 November 1943 in Algiers, Algeria) is a French economist and scholar. From 1981 to 1991, he was an advisor to President François Mitterand.

In 1998 Attali founded the French non-profit organization PlaNet Finance which focuses on microfinance.

In April 1991 he became the first President of the London-based European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, the financial institution established by western governments to assist the countries of eastern and central Europe and the former Soviet Union in their transition to democratic market economies.

Attali is perhaps best known in America as the author of "", ISBN 0-8166-1287-0, which bears a foreword by Fredric Jameson and afterword by Susan McClary.
