The Hale Legacy

David Hale
David Hale Global Economics was founded in 2009 by David D. Hale, an eminent global economist, winner of the William F. Butler Award and a prolific author and speaker. A graduate of the Georgetown School of Foreign Service and the London School of Economics. His works include “What’s Next? Unconventional Views on the World Economy” (Yale University Press) which he co-authored with his wife, Lyric Hughes Hale.
After Mr. Hale passed away in 2015, the company continued its mission of providing global macroeconomic and strategic analysis to Fortune 500 companies and asset managers worldwide.
Mr. Hale was a prolific writer, and we have made all of his work, both published and distributed to his clients, to the public.  Mr. Hale had an incredible grasp of economic history and was able to synthesis that knowledge with current events and on-the-ground research to formulate cogent and original analysis. At Hale Strategic, we remain devoted to his vision and methodology.
David was a proud native of Vermont, and clients, friends, and colleagues have also supported the St Johnsbury History and Heritage Center, which now houses his collection of historic books on the Vermont economy.
