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. In a statement, Obama credited Krueger with helping revive the U.S. economy after the devastating 2008 financial crisis....

Economic boobs are better in twos
Have you noticed that for all the virulent Trump hate that exists there is no one out there claiming that he has a trail of bodies in his wake. The Clintons, the Obamas, they have body counts. Not Trump.
He does appear a bit ‘light on his feet’, but even so, I do wonder what he was ready to ‘discuss’.
“Being a liberal his whole life he finally faced the truth and recognized what a scumbag he really was?”
Good point. Maybe he talked to a Republican OTHER than Bill Kristol and got his head handed to him. Would explain a lot.
Two gunshots to the back of his head suicide?
If he suffered from depression and then realized his book about the Obama economy was going to fall flat in the face of the Trump powerhouse economy, it could send him over the edge.
With the Clintons it’s, “Follow the Bodies...”
why does anyone kill themself? usually depression
Mystery ping. Why did he kill himself?
Clinton code if omerta:
Testify or die
That is the question
I wonder what he did to p!$$ Hillary off?
Having served Clinton and Obama maybe he had an epiphany on the error of his ways and did the honorable thing.
Bloodgate is finally going to come out?
” Why did he kill himself?
How’d he do it....three to the back of the head?
“The body was found with 3 bullet holes in the back of the head, local mall security guards have ruled it a suicide.”
So.... he tries to shoot himself in the back of the head and shoots himself in the ass and then pulls the trigger again and hits pay dirt. I guess it's doable, just.
He said/did something that the Klintoons & Obummer didn’t like. He paid the price.
He was probably told that it was the fake-suicide option or the Fort Marcy Park option...
Should read “revised” economy since every month there was a revised jobs report for the previous month that actually was less than first reported. This in turn led to a revised quarterly GDP, and so on and so forth..
Will there be a Coroner’s report?
