  • Former Obama economic adviser Alan Krueger dead at 58 [Top Clinton & Obama Advisor]

    05/05/2019 10:34:26 PM PDT · by NoLibZone · 65 replies
    Alan Krueger, a Princeton University economist who served as a top adviser to Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, died Saturday, according to the university. The 58-year-old committed suicide, his family said in a separate statement released by the school Monday. “It is with tremendous sadness we share that Professor Alan B. Krueger, beloved husband, father, son, brother, and Princeton professor of economics took his own life over the weekend,” the family said. “The family requests the time and space to grieve and remember him.” Krueger served as a Labor Department economist under Clinton, then as a top Treasury official...

    The suicide of Alan Krueger, a former Obama and Clinton adviser who killed himself this weekend, has shocked the worlds of politics and business where he was universally revered. Krueger, 58, had a new book coming out in June and was still a member of faculty at Princeton University in New Jersey. He lived at home with his wife Lisa, with whom he has two children, Benjamin, 28, and Sydney, 26. He is survived by them, his elderly parents and siblings. The family confirmed that he killed himself in a statement that was released by Princeton on Monday but no...

    Alan Krueger, a Princeton University economist and a top adviser under two Presidents, has died at age 58 after taking his own life. “It is with tremendous sadness we share that Professor Alan B. Krueger, beloved husband, father, son, brother, and Princeton professor of economics took his own life over the weekend,” a statement from his family reads. “The family requests the time and space to grieve and remember him. In lieu of flowers, we encourage those wishing to honor Alan to make a contribution to the charity of their choice.” His passing was initially announced Monday by Princeton, which...

    White House Dossier ^ | February 4, 2013, 8:40 am | Keith Koffler
    White House Council of Economic Adviser Chair Alan Krueger has begun his monthly statements on the nation’s employment situation with nearly the exact same sentences almost every month since November 2011, just after he was installed as one of Obama’s most senior economic advisers. With the exception of some variation in the May 2012 statement, Krueger has mailed it in every month, not bothering to change a thing in the opening lines of his commentary on the statistic that is perhaps more important to Americans. Krueger’s statements are released by the White House the morning the latest employment numbers become...

    NEW YORK — You might call it the cognitive divide — the split between an evidence-based worldview and one that is rooted in faith or ideology — and it is one of the most important fault lines in the United States today. President Barack Obama called attention to the cognitive divide, and reminded us...when he chose the Princeton University economist Alan Krueger to lead his Council of Economic Advisers. Mr. Krueger is a labor economist, and at first blush, that focus may seem the important part of his résumé......his mastery of data and his utter commitment to the truths it...

    Any hopes that President Obama might somehow recognize the utter failure of his economic policies and seek new ideas and directions were dashed by his selection Monday of Princeton University economist Alan E. Krueger to succeed Austan D. Goolsbee as chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers. Krueger previously served as an assistant secretary of the Treasury under Timothy Geithner. Obama praised Krueger's work during the first two years of his administration, and said Krueger's chief task in the new job will be to help develop policy recommendations to get the stagnating economy growing again. Don't expect any new ideas...

    President Obama formally announced that Alan Krueger will be his newest economic adviser Monday morning, also suggesting in a Rose Garden statement that he’s about finished with his jobs plan that he’ll announce next week. "I will be laying out a series of steps that Congress can take immediately to put more money in the pockets of working families and middle-class families,

    President Barack Obama on Monday will announced he has chosen Princeton University labor economist Alan Krueger to become the top White House economist, a White House official said. Krueger would succeed Austan Goolsbee as chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers. The decision comes as Obama prepares to unveil a jobs package in a speech planned for shortly after the September 5 Labor Day holiday. With U.S. unemployment at a stubbornly high 9.1 percent and amid fears the economy could slide back into recession, Obama is under pressure to show he is doing all he can to bolster growth. Goolsbee,...

    Amy Krueger joined Army in aftermath of Sept. 11 attacks. In Kiel, Wis., a rural community of 3,200, feeling for the military runs so strong that, every Veterans Day, the high school invites local vets to lunch. So it was not entirely surprising that the week after Amy Krueger, a college student preparing to be a social worker, watched the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on television, she and her roommate walked into an Army recruiting office to enlist. She felt she needed to be "an army of one," a story in the local Tri-County Times quoted Krueger as saying...

    A 1998 graduate of Kiel High School is among the 13 people killed Thursday when 39-year-old Major Nidal Hasan opened fire on his fellow soldiers at Fort Hood, Texas, getting ready to deploy overseas. Thirty people were wounded. Staff Sergeant Amy Krueger was killed at Fort Hood. The first thing the mayor of Kiel did Friday morning when he heard the news about 29-year-old Amy Krueger was to order all the flags in the city lowered to half-staff. The mayor, who's too close to the Krueger family to speak on-camera, told us he feels overwhelmed and he still can't believe...

    ACORN, a social justice organization with roots in [New Orleans], battles a string of scandals. The announcement stuck to a wall outside the entrance to ACORN's local office in the 2600 block of Canal Street quietly signals the trouble afoot. In English and Spanish, the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now tells walk-up clients that ACORN's housing office has shut itself down for two weeks to immerse itself "in an intensive training program." The sign is a symptom of a tumultuous week in the history of a controversial poor people's social justice movement -- one founded by a New...

    ONE of the high notes this past hunting season was the success of the new Junior Big-Game hunting license authorized by Gov. David A. Paterson, which allows 14- and 15-year-olds to hunt big game for the first time. State Senator Liz Krueger (D-N.Y.) is trying to undo the positive steps taken by the state legislature last year by introducing Senate Bill 3598, which would raise the hunting age across the board. Specifically, the bill increases the minimum age for obtaining a hunting license from 16 to 18 years of age, and would require anyone under the age of 20 to...

    Call it "A Nightmare on Bulwer Road." A British man, Jason Moore, could spend the rest of his life in the clink for attacking his friend John-Paul Skamarski with a knife-equipped glove -- much like the one Freddy Krueger used to snag his prey in the "Nightmare on Elm Street" horror flicks.

    January 24, 1935: First canned beer goes on salehttp://www.history.com/tdih.do?action=tdihVideoCategory&id=52350 Canned beer makes its debut on this day in 1935. In partnership with the American Can Company, the Gottfried Krueger Brewing Company delivered 2,000 cans of Krueger's Finest Beer and Krueger's Cream Ale to faithful Krueger drinkers in Richmond, Virginia. Ninety-one percent of the drinkers approved of the canned beer, driving Krueger to give the green light to further production. By the late 19th century, cans were instrumental in the mass distribution of foodstuffs, but it wasn't until 1909 that the American Can Company made its first attempt to can beer....

    Fired KNBR sports talk jock Larry Krueger and ex-morning show producer Tony Rhein have filed a pair of blistering lawsuits against their former employer -- saying they were fired after the infamous "brain-dead Caribbean hitters" flap simply so the station could keep its deal to broadcast Giants games. Just when it looked like the storm might pass with a weeklong suspension for Krueger and an apology from the mike man, KNBR's morning crew rained on the parade six days later by playing comedy bits from "South Park" and from Dana Carvey's "Church Lady'' to mock Alou for calling Krueger a...
