CBO's Panel of Economic Advisers for 2010

May 20, 2010

CBO has a panel of economic advisers that includes many distinguished economists (some of whom are former CBO directors). We host periodic meetings of the advisers at our office and solicit the advisers’ views between meetings via email exchanges and phone calls. Through these interactions, we benefit from the advisers’ understanding of cutting-edge research, current economic conditions and the economic outlook, and economic policy. As a result of the advisers’ comments, the quality of CBO’s economic analysis is greatly enhanced. The advisers for 2010 are:
