Peter Orszag: Obama's pick for OMB
”Peter Orszag, the head of the Congressional Budget Office, was picked to head Obama’s Office of Management and Budget, a top Democratic source told CNN on Tuesday. Orszag worked at the Clinton White House as special assistant to the president at the National Economic Council and served on the Council of Economic Advisers.”
Orszag has written on the dangers of rising deficits for interest rates, and on the government’s fiscal “gap” into the infinite horizon, to head OMB.
Change we can believe in?
