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 further details surrounding his death have emerged. Krueger, who served as a top adviser to both Obama and Clinton, recently completed his sixth book, Rockonomics. The book, which will be released in June, 'uses the music industry, from superstar artists to music executives, from managers to promoters, as a way in to explain key principles of economics, and the forces shaping our economic lives.' He was an avid tweeter who used social media almost daily until the end of January when he suddenly stopped. Currency, his publisher, has not commented on his death.
Krueger was best known for his groundbreaking research into minimum wage and the effect it had on labor. He determined that a higher minimum wage did not slow down hiring as conservatives have long argued. After serving as a Labor Department economist under President Bill Clinton, Krueger worked for President Barack Obama as a top Treasury official and then as chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers from 2011 to 2013.

The Clinton-Obama circle mortality is very high. What are the odds?
Is it really surprising when a man whose entirely life is based on lies offs himself?
It is WHAT you know.
I wonder who else offed themselves last weekend?
For the same reason Vince Foster committed suicide?
A) Maybe he had a terminal illness.
B) Any labor economist who works for Clinton and Obama is working for the enemy of labor.
Krueger was found unresponsive with 2 gunshot wounds... one to the back of the head and the other in his upper backside. The death has been ruled a suicide.
You bet he didn’t kill himself?
“Ill bet he didnt.”
Yeah, I’ll just bet those two rounds in the back of his head are a clue that he had “help.”
How about death by hanging self with a door knob?
Google that conspiracy and see how many have done though.
Add him to the long list of clinton associates who have died prematurely.
The guy has a book scheduled for release this spring but I got the impression it would be a victory lap for the outstanding economic recovery under Caliph Baraq...
Could Krueger have been a CIA asset?
The reason I speculate is there are no details to the story.
That's awesome, except the part about none of that ever happening.
Well to be fair the Clinton-Obama circle is made up exclusively of liberals, and liberalism is a mental disorder it only stands to reason that the suicide rate would be higher among liberals.

or the US Constitution”, Alex.
It can be depressing when a “useful idiot” discovers that he is no longer useful, only an idiot.
anybody know how ? Haven’t been able to find out.
Probably got tired of lying and covering up for those two morons.
