enjoy the next 17 months krueger
tennis buddy with sperling
colleague of Krugman (in fact he has Krugmans's eyes)
contributing architect of Obama's "stimulus"
This is a wise choice - I'm increasingly impressed by president Obama's ability to make smart choices during these trying times. Professor Alan Krueger (phd, harvard, cornell, princeton) was rated as the 50th best economists in the world by REPEC. Krueger's diligent research has PROVEN the benefits of minimum wage policies on worker's pay. Thanks to his research we can envision a day with minimum wages of $1,000,000+ and increased price controls, making people richer and more prosperous beyond our wildest dreams.
Is Alan Krueger any relation to a Freddy Krueger?
Welcome back Hamy !
God bless us, everyone!
Hey, that's my line!
It's not a revolving door...... it's a Merry-Go-Round
As chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers, Krueger’s salary would be $191,300 a year. In his last full year as a professor at Princeton, Krueger made $369,807, according to his financial disclosure report.
Krueger supplemented that income with consulting, board memberships and speeches, including $7,000 from Goldman Sachs for a speech in June 2008. As council chairman, Krueger would again be working with National Economic Council director Gene Sperling, who left Treasury earlier this year to replace Summers and also drew money from Goldman before joining the administration, earning $887,727 for advice on that company’s charitable giving.
Is Obama a Keynesian?
Not if he shows us his birth certificate he's not!
Obama introduces a new boss to the list of managers he has.
Yeah. How did his last "introduction" go?
UHH What is B) a Muslim?
You make a good point. If our country is all inclusive and favors "diversity" etc etc...Why is a Muslim never selected or even considered for that matter??????
and so you are clueless. his point is that the mass of appointees to governmental economic positions in this country are jewish. check the %age at SEC, Treasury, Fed, etc. and you will be stunned. there is no diversity here.
Because everyone including subhuman scum such as politicians hate muslims, they just aren't allowed to say so in public.
YEp, lets just throw another (ass) hat into the ring.
One of Mr Kruegers books:
What Makes a terrorist: economics and the roots of Terrorism, 2007
I haven't read the book, but I am a believer that these organizations (terrorist) would less prevalent if they had a thriving economy. We should send them SUVs, big screen tv's and lots of cheesy poofs, then they would become fat couch potatoes watching Al Jazeera Idol and be a threat to nobody but themselves.
I have a theory the reason so many terrorists are Middle-Eastern, Muslim men is their reaction to the general unattractiveness of Muslim women. Most of them look like water buffaloes and that makes the men angry and depressed. There aren't many Swedish terrorists because Swedish women are totally hot. My single-point solution to world terrorism - more hot women.
And the difference between him and the last 20 economists to go through the revolving door at the WH?
They can be differentiated by their reasons for more stimulus
He is way more photogenic than the last fat fuck from Harvard.
Why, yes, he is, isn't he ? That said, does the Executive Office of the President have Delta Dental ?
Photogenic of the "crazy brilliant" kind:
Harvard wins again!

Another Keyesian...Bob Wenzel at EPJ cut him to pieces earlier today. http://www.economicpolicyjournal.com/2011/08/obama-to-nominate-extremist-to-head.html
Wenzel is not a Keynesian. He is deeply entrenched in the Austrian School. Don't know how you got that...
I think you misread Bread's post. I read it as him referring to Krueger the Keynesian, not Wenzel.
edit: Axios, not Bread. Sorry.
I think you misunderstood what Axios said. He agrees with you.
Ah. I see now.
Labor "economists" such as Krueger are the perfect personification of science made to serve politics and preconceived opinions.
The moment when politics and opinions answers to science will be the moment when Austrian economics become mainstream.
The US is already in a recession, based on Real GDP figures adjusted for CPI.
When deflating Nominal GDP using John Williams (Shadowstats) methodology (original CPI method), the US economy has been in a recession since 1990 and it is getting worse.
Well, yeah. If you're into accuracy, rigor, and all that.
Aah, just what we needed! Another bright Princeton eCONomist.
I posted this backgrounder on Dr. K earlier today. The guy is a fav of Roubini and worked under Rubin back in the day and recently along side Rattner.
Alan Krueger sodomizes himself with large squash and eats feces. seriously.
So you're his grocer or proctologist or 'roommate'?
Would have prefered Freddy Krueger. The better to slash government spending, my dear.
Another "academic" fucknut to help "fix" things in the real world. Perfect, hey at least everyone knows how to hedge accordingly. We have all seen this dance before.
Krueger: Well it's not so much a double dip recession as an Even Greater Super Moderation.

Anyone who is curious as to what this new "advisor" who is a white tip shoe boys fully fledged official member and what sort of policies you can expect out of him let me give you small taste.This is from:
Inequality, Too Much of a Good ThingAlan B. Krueger1Princeton University and NBERApril 16, 2002
I found this on page 26
"The evidence suggests to me that society can have more equality and more efficiency byallocating shifting resources to education. Such programs could be paid for by rejectingproposals that would exacerbate income disparities, including the elimination of theestate tax or cuts in the capital income tax and top income tax rate. Moreover, as notedearlier, education and training are popular ways to transfer income, probably because ofthe good Samaritan’s dilemma. Practical political economy issues of what proposals forredistributing income are in the feasible set should not be ignored by economists"
Yup..more of the same.
Labor economics usually contributes to screwing up free market systems.
ZOMG! Things will be so much different now!
He also is a huge proponent of the VAT. He believes that should a VAT be enacted, we the consumer would dash out and buy before the tax would take effect and hence improve the economy. Troubling theory as in order to spend, the consumer must have cash and as we all know, the JOBS or lack thereof lends to the current lack of consumer spending. Idiots.
