I am disturbed by the nature of these posts. Very disappointed in fellow freepers.

She and her husband (also an economist) published a paper
that said tax cuts provide more growth than other government spending.
Larry Kudlow quoted this on his show last week.

She was for tax cuts in a Dem Administration. Tax cuts work according
to her analysis.

I was wondering why Tim Geithner Treasury is suddenly so out publicly
at the Medicare report, writing newspaper columns, etc.

It’s that Romer was AGAINST not extending all the Bush tax cuts.
She’s resigning. And now Timmy has to do the dirty work.
(Larry Summers...who knows what he is up to?)

Probably all accurate but the news article makes her sound like a whiner.

Cristina Romer is the worst kind of economist,an opportunist. She may have written a paper as an academic defending tax cuts but from day one with this administration she has been selling Keynesian stimulus and fallen in line calling for eliminating the Bush tax cuts for “the rich”.She has zero credibility as does his entire economics team except Volcker who may as well not be on the team because no one listens to him.

Agreed, Its interesting that "fat: outweighs the issue of what her economic positions were, TO CUT TAXES.

Its the only thing that will work, and no matter how they run around it, NOTHING else will work, NOT EVEN THE OBA Plan to extiguish billions in mortgage debt in arrears using Fannie Freddie, as has been floated. That will make things a whole lot worse.

In fact she likely was the only voice of sanity in that crowd of slick ideologues.

I agree with you about the distasteful personal posts about
Romer. People are letting their bad mood be reflected with bad manners.

I agree - Romer was one of the few sane Democrats in this administration. I suspect she left willingly and I wonder how many more of her type are worrying about the way things are going. Democrat Angst - it brings a little smile to my face...

She is tainted by her closeness to the 0.

I have heard her in pressers a couple of times and while she may be knowledgeable her presentation sucks. I can't imagine taking an econ class from her it must be very painful.

I guess when you are told to pick cotton in Death Valley and you point out the absurdity, the only thing left to do is leave the valley.

Thank you for the truth. We all need to take a breath and fight against ODS (Obama Derangement Syndrome).
