President Obama nominated Jacob “Jack” Lew as his new Treasury secretary. I couldn’t find any real information about his economic views, but I am confident he will follow the well worn trail established by his predecessor, Tim Geithner, and other Neo-Keynesians that populate mainstream economics in our capitol.
This is from Wikipedia:
Jacob Joseph “Jack” Lew (born August 29, 1955) is an American politician and the 25th and current White House Chief of Staff. Lew previously served as Director of the Office of Management and Budget in the Clinton and Obama Administration, and is a member of the Democratic Party.
Born in New York City, New York, Lew is a graduate of Harvard College and Georgetown University Law Center. Lew began his career as a legislative assistant to Representative Joe Moakley and as a senior policy adviser to former House Speaker Tip O’Neil. Lew then worked as an attorney in private practice before working as a deputy in Boston’s office of management and budget. In 1993, he began work for the Clinton Administration as Special Assistant to the President. In 1994 Lew served as Associate Director for Legislative Affairs and Deputy Director of the Office of Management and Budget, where he served a Director of that agency from 1998 to 2001 and from 2010 to 2012. Lew later served as the first Deputy Secretary of State for Management and Resources, from 2009 to 2010.
