Dynan and Gayer to Brookings

I am delighted to note that Karen Dynan and Ted Gayer will become codirectors of the Brookings Economic Studies Program. Karen and Ted worked with me at the CEA in 2003-2004, and Karen is a former student of mine. They are both superb economists who will do an excellent job helping lead one of the premier public policy think tanks. (Gayer, by the way, is coauthor of an excellent textbook on public finance.)
