New Editors at BPEA

The Brookings Papers on Economic Activity has a new team of editors: David Romer and Justin Wolfers. Both are old friends and former coauthors of mine. They are also both excellent economists. I am delighted to see BPEA in such capable hands.

You might ask, What happened to the last team of three editors? One went to the NEC, one went to the CBO, and one, optimally responding to expected incentives, is enjoying more leisure.
