The (Non-Weiner) News That Matters: Jared Bernstein
Looking to date the downfall of American society, future historians may point to the last two weeks as the pivotal moment along the way. Among the signposts: Nobel winning labor economist Peter Diamond withdrawing his name for a governorship at the Federal Reserve; unemployment jagging up, house prices plummeting down. So says former White House economist Jared Bernstein. (It’ll require future historians because live-time American pols and pundits were absorbed with Rep. Weiner’s you know what.)

Like Diamond, Bernstein wanted to make a difference from inside — but he left the administration this April in order to work more effectively on the nation’s priorities. We spoke June 7th at his new perch, the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities.. The full interview will be seen on The Laura Flanders Show, coming this fall, to public television stations nationwide.
