George Kahn, a vice president and economist at the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City, has been named a Fellow by the National Association for Business Economics (NABE).

With this recognition, Kahn joins a select group that includes former Federal Reserve Board Chairs Janet Yellen, Ben Bernanke, Alan Greenspan and Paul Volcker, as well as Alan Blinder and Milton Freedman.

Kahn has been at the Bank since 1982. He joined NABE in the early 1990s as a way to network within his field, and has become more involved in the organization over the years.

“It provides opportunities for Fed economists to make connections with other economists in the real world who have industry- or sector-specific knowledge,” Kahn said.

NABE’s board of directors selects Fellows annually. Selection criteria include service as a professional business economist, contributions to the field of business economics and outstanding contributions to NABE.
