TNR: The Audacity of Data

Noam Scheiber at TNR on Obama's policy approach and advisers: smart and pragmatic. Still more reason to be very excited about Barak.

I'll try to get past the opening of the TNR article later, but here's my experience with the Obama brain trust. I blogged a question about something on his web site, and Austan Goolsbee himself (apparently) responded with the data I was looking for. (Ah, the uses of a rare name!) In the process, I learned something important for U.S. education policy.

Via Instapundit, re NAFTA:

"Also distressing is the fact that Austan Goolsbee, the fine economist who is a close adviser to Obama, apparently is ignored by the would-be President of the USA on this front. Of course, I have no knowledge of what Goolsbee says and doesn't say to Obama, but I presume that Goolsbee isn't in the anti-trade camp."

Wow...this is impressive indeed LL. Surely this must have been an anomaly?

WS, definitely a rare happenstance. It's not as though I have a lot of readers.

Hey, TVD, nice tom sequitur.
