Tomas Sedlacek is a Czech economist and university lecturer. He is the Chief Macroeconomic Strategist at CSOB, a former member of the National Economic Council of the Czech Republic and an economic advisor to former President Václav Havel. In 2006, the Yale Economic Review mentioned him in an article titled "Young Guns: 5 Hot Minds in Economics". His book Economics of Good and Evil, a bestseller in the Czech Republic, was translated into English and published by the Oxford University Press in June, 2011.

In 2001, during his studies at the Charles University in Prague, he became an economic advisor to President Václav Havel. He was 24. From November 2001 to February 2003, Sedlácek worked for the Czech President.

In January, 2004, he was engaged as an advisor to the former Minister of Finance Bohuslav Sobotka. However, he left the position in 2006, according to his own words "due to excessive politicization of the work at the Ministry".

In 2006, during his scholarship at Yale University, he was listed as one of the "Young Guns: 5 Hot Minds in Economics" in the Yale Economic Review. Following his return from the United States, he was engaged as Chief Macroeconomic Strategist at the Ceskoslovenská obchodní banka (CSOB). As of 2011, he still holds the position at the bank. Additionally, he is a columnist and media commentator. He also lectures at the Charles University.

The book - Economics of Good and Evil: The Quest for Economic Meaning from Gilgamesh to Wall Street became a bestseller in the Czech Republic.

In his book, Sedlácek refuses the one-sided view of economics as a value-free mathematical inquiry. He describes economics as a cultural phenomenon and a product of our civilization closely tied with philosophy, myth, religion, anthropology, and the arts. According to Sedlácek, economics should not concern only abstract mathematical modelling, but also societies' values.

In 2009, the book received the Wald Press Award. In 2012, the book won the Frankfurt Book Fair Awardb for the best economic title in Germany.
