Bush selects Rosen for economic post
Princeton NJ -- Harvey Rosen, an economics professor at Princeton since 1974 and co-director of the University's Center for Economic Policy Studies, will be nominated to serve on President Bush's Council of Economic Advisers. The White House on April 24 announced its intention to nominate Rosen as one of the council's three members.
Rosen is the author of "Public Finance," a widely studied textbook that was initially published in 1985 and has been translated into Spanish, German, Croatian and Chinese. He also co-wrote "Microeconomics" (1991) with Michael Katz, an economics professor at the University of California-Berkeley, and edited "Studies in State and Local Public Finance" (1986) and "Fiscal Federalism: Quantitative Studies" (1988).
Rosen served as chair of the Department of Economics from 1993 to 1996. He is a fellow of the Econometric Society and a research associate with the National Bureau of Economic Research.
President Bush in February nominated Harvard economist Gregory Mankiw, a member of Princeton's class of 1980 and one of Rosen's former students, to lead the Council of Economic Advisers. The council provides the president with economic analysis and advice on the development and implementation of a wide range of domestic and international economic policy issues.
