George G Kaufman is one of the premier financial economists of his generation who has made significant contributions in several areas of financial research.

Most of his research was driven by his passion to contribute to the design and implementation of appropriate financial policies that promote financial stability and market efficiency. He has contributed over 20 Congressional Testimonies during the past few decades.
