I will be the first to admit I’m not “in the loop” on the President’s thinking on who will be Chairman (I’m guessing it’ll be a guy) of the Council of Economic Advisers, but (as a former CEA staffer), I’m intrinsically curious three weeks into the new Administration who it will be — a curiosity heightened by the President’s 3AM call to National Security Adviser General Flynn on the dollar’s role, as well as the announcement of VP Pence’s chief economist.
Anybody have any insights? (I think this is called a “bleg” in the vernacular).
Update, 4pm Pacific: The Hill discusses.
Previous coverage has mentioned Larry Kudlow and Kevin Hassett. Demoting CEA Chair from cabinet level hardly seems like a good way to recruit.
