Malcolm Bush may best be known of late as a credit union critic, but his work in economic development goes back even farther. Prior to joining Woodstock in 1992, Bush served as assistant professor of social policy at the University of Chicago, and as assistant professor of urban policy and education and chairperson of the program in social policy and human development at Northwestern University. He has authored a book, Families in Distress: Public, Private, and Civic Responsibilities, and published more than 35 articles on economic development, social issues, and public policy in various professional journals. He is the Board Chair for the Financial Markets Center and on the Board of Directors of the National Community Reinvestment Coalition. He is also co-chair of the Steering Committee of the Chicago Federal Reserve Board’s Mortgage Credit Partnership Project and the Advisory Board of the Reserve Bank’s Assessing the Midwest Economy Project.
