Rosen to be nominated for President Bush's Council of Economic Advisers
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 announced its intention to nominate Rosen as one of the council's three members on Thursday, April 24.
Rosen is the John L. Weinberg Professor of Economics and Business Policy at Princeton. His research and publications focus on topics such as federal taxation, state and local governmental finance, housing policy and labor study.
Rosen served as the deputy assistant secretary for tax analysis in the Department of the Treasury under President George H.W. Bush from 1989 to 1991.
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 joined the Princeton economics faculty in 1974 and served as the department's chair from 1993 to 1996. He also is a fellow of the Econometric Society and a research associate with the National Bureau of Economic Research.
He earned a bachelor's degree from the University of Michigan in 1970, a master's degree in economics from Harvard University in 1972 and a Ph.D. in economics from Harvard in 1974.
President Bush in February nominated Harvard economist N. Gregory Mankiw, a member of Princeton's class of 1980 and a former student of Rosen's, 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.
