Expertise: Financial markets, trade, federal budget, economy

Andy Green is the Managing Director of Economic Policy at American Progress. He writes and speaks about financial markets and regulation; corporate governance and competition; international trade; and the economy and middle class. Green was editor of “Raising Wages and Rebuilding Wealth: A Roadmap for Middle-Class Economic Security,” a wide-ranging CAP report on causes and solutions to the wages and wealth squeeze on middle-class America. He writes regularly on financial regulation, including the Volcker rule, and has co-authored prominent CAP reports on the relationship between corporate long-termism and workforce training and on how to revitalize competition policy. He has appeared on CNN, Fox Business News, Bloomberg TV, C-SPAN, and a range of radio talk shows, and he has testified before Congress.

Prior to joining American Progress, he served as counsel to Kara Stein, commissioner of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Prior to joining the SEC in 2014, Green served as counsel to U.S. Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-OR) and staff director of the U.S. Senate Banking Committee’s Subcommittee on Economic Policy. He participated in the passage of the Dodd-Frank Act in 2010 and was the lead staff member for the Merkley-Levin amendment, which added the Volcker rule into the law. He also participated in the passage of the JOBS Act as the lead staff member of the Merkley-Brown-Bennet amendment, which authored the law’s crowdfunding provisions.

Prior to joining Sen. Merkley’s office in early 2009, Green practiced corporate law at Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson in Hong Kong and Shanghai. Green holds a B.A. in government and an M.A. in East Asian regional studies from Harvard University and a J.D. from the University of California, Hastings College of the Law.

Green also serves as a member of the board of directors of the Junior State of America Foundation, which supports nonpartisan year-round and summer leadership programs for high school students who are interested in politics and government.
