Harold van Buren Cleveland was a US economist and author.
Harold Van B. Cleveland graduated from Harvard University in 1938 and from its law school in 1942, when he joined the War Production Board as an industrial specialist.
Cleveland worked for the US State Department. After the war he and Ben T. Moore, as members of the State Department's economic bureau, wrote a report outlining a program for the economic revival of Europe.
Their study and a parallel one from the department's policy planning staff were submitted to Gen. George C. Marshall, the Secretary of State, who used them to shape what became known as the Marshall Plan. Formally called the European Recovery Program, it was proposed by General Marshall in 1947.
Cleveland helped carry it out as a deputy director in the European division of the Economic Cooperation Administration. He returned to Washington as an economist for the Committee for Economic Development in the early 1950's.
He joined Citibank in 1965, where he worked for 20 years, becoming a vice president and chief international economist.
Cleveland was the author and co-author of many books and articles, including "The Atlantic Idea and Its European Rivals (1966, McGraw-Hill for the Council on Foreign Relations), and a history of Citibank.
