Charles Dumas has been head of Lombard Street Research’s World Service since 1998. He has extensive experience as a business economist and financial markets professional. He was a managing director in JP Morgan’s New York M&A department from 1988 to 1992 and has worked in its capital markets group in New York and London.
In the 1980s he was Head of Research for JP Morgan in London. In the mid to late 1970s he was Director of European Economics for General Motors. Before that he worked on tax reform for the British Conservative Party and as a journalist on The Economist.
Charles originated the idea of the Eurasian savings glut (of which China's surplus now forms the largest part) in 2004, and detailed its potentially damaging global impact in two books, The Bill from the China Shop: How Asia's Savings Glut Threatens the World Economy (Profile Books, 2006, with Diana Choyleva), and China and America: A Time of Reckoning (Profile Books, 2008).
