R. Glenn Hubbard (born September 4, 1958 in Apopka, Florida) is an American economist. He is Dean of the Columbia University Graduate School of Business, where he is also Russell L. Carson Professor of Finance and Economics. [6]

Hubbard is a Visiting Scholar at the American Enterprise Institute, where he studies tax policy and health care.

Professor Hubbard received his B.A. and B.S. degrees summa cum laude from the University of Central Florida in 1979, and his Ph.D. in economics from Harvard University in 1983.

Hubbard has been at Columbia University since 1988. From February 2001 until March 2003, he was chairman of the Council of Economic Advisors under President George W. Bush. He was named dean of Columbia Business School on July 1, 2004.

He was tipped by some media outlets to be a candidate for the position of Chairman of the Federal Reserve when Alan Greenspan retired, although he was not nominated for the position.[7]

A supply-side economist, he was instrumental in the design of the 2003 Bush Tax cuts.[7]

Professor Hubbard is married to Constance Hubbard, and has two sons. His brother, Gregg Hubbard, is the keyboardist for the country band, Sawyer Brown.

On January 11, 2006, it was announced that he has been tapped to serve on the advisory board of a think tank formed by the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas to study the impact of globalization on the international economy.

Hubbard was an economic advisor to the 2008 presidential campaign of Mitt Romney.

He serves as Co-Chair of the Committee on Capital Markets Regulation.

Popular Culture

In the spring of 2006, Columbia Business school students produced a parody video, "Every breath Bernanke takes", describing Hubbard's supposed disappointment at not receiving the nomination to be Chairman of the Federal Reserve. The video is a mock music video remix of The Police's song "Every Breath You Take".[8] The comedy troupe which produced the video also made one in 2005 about Hubbard, playing off the Vanilla Ice song "Ice Ice Baby". These videos have been popularized by Internet sites and blogs.
