Summers Gets The Other Top Econ Job

So it’s Larry Summers to head the Council of Economic Advisors. This should be interesting. Summers has always impressed me as an in your face type of guy. Geithner at Treasury is your prototypical public servant. Look for lots of leaks and back channel bull.

My bet is that Geithner doesn’t last more than a year or two. There’s a big difference between the academic environment of the Fed and the rough and tumble of Washington and White House politics.
