The New Chair Of The Council Of Economic Advisors Is Christina Romer
You can read about her at this New York Times article Christina D. Romer. She is a highly regarded scholar, being an expert on the Great Depression and business cycles. It looks like a good choice by Obama. In addition to publishing many articles in technical journals, she wrote a very good overview of the Depression for Britannica. Click on Great Depression to read it. Maybe her ability to communicate clearly to a general audience will be an asset as chief economic advisor.
