UM: Economy

Bloomberg News takes a look at Obama’s economic advisors, and talks to sources who have insight into how they’ll approach the job. The article quotes Michael Barr, a UM law professor who in the 1990s worked with Timothy Geithner, said to be Obama’s pick for Treasury secretary, and Lawrence Summers, the choice for White House economic director: ”It’s certainly not going to be Nirvana, but policy making never is….A strong president is best served by a strong series of team members and that’s what Obama is getting.” [Source]
