Three Cheers for Jared Bernstein, Named Chief Economist to Biden
How’s this for change in Washington after eight years of conservative and corporate- fawning economic policy? Respected progressive economist Jared Bernstein was named Friday to the newly created post of chief economist and economic policy adviser to Vice President Joe Biden.
Bernstein is a 16-year veteran of the Economic Policy Institute (EPI) and mostly recently served as EPI’s director of living standards program.
Jared Bernstein is an acclaimed economist and a proven, passionate advocate for raising the incomes of middle class families. His expertise and background in a wide range of domestic and international economic policies will be an invaluable asset to the Obama-Biden administration.
