Daniel Daianu

is a Romanian economist. In the 1990s, he was the Finance Minister of Romania and the Chief Economist of the Romanian National Bank. He is also a former MEP (2007-2009) and a professor of public finance at the National School of Political Studies and Public Administration (SNSPA) in Bucharest. He has taught at Berkeley, UCLA, Ann Arbor, and Bologna University. He is an associate member of the Romanian Academy.

Daianu has taken a strong position against financial institutions receiving state support to withstand the financial crisis, while at the same time speculating against eastern European currencies with disastrous effects on emerging economies in the region. In the European Parliament he was a rapporteur for the reform of the regulation and supervision of financial markets. His latest book is Which way goes capitalism? (New York/Budapest, CEU Press, 2009). With Radu Vranceanu he co-edited Ethical Boundaries of Capitalism (Aldershot, Ashgate, 2005). His columns are published by, among others, European Voice, Southeast European Times, Ziarul Financiar and Piata Financiara.
