Cees De Galan was awarded a PhD in economics at the University of Amsterdam in 1957.

Around the 1971 Parliamentary Elections, he was included as Minister of Economic Affairs in the Shadow Cabinet Den Uyl of PvdA, D66 and PPR. At the end of 1981 he and fellow economist Victor Halberstadt were appointed to mediate the "cabinet crisis". Because of their glue attempts, the Van Agt II cabinet remained on. Between 1972 and 1987, Galan was a crown member of the Socio-Economic Council (SER). In 1984 he was acting-chairman of the SER. From 1982 to 1987 Galan was chairman of the Insurance Chamber.
