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....

Why did Obama and Clinton economic adviser, 58, take his own life

For substantially the same reasons as Vince Foster?

He stopped tweeting in January and offed himself in March. Maybe he found out he had an imminently terminal or severely degenerative disease.

Seems like a news blackout on the cause and events leading to.

Of course if the family actually wants that, more power to them.

Being a liberal his whole life he finally faced the truth and recognized what a scumbag he really was?

Does anyone really ever know why someone commits suicide? Especially when they don’t even leave a note most of the time.

Because his economics didn’t work in real life, and supply-side economics does?

I’d think one would be humiliated working for Obama....as we should of been in this kind of economic boob (full recovery) in ‘10 or ‘12, instead of now—had the Obama Administration been right on how to build the country.

" Why did he kill himself?”

He realized that his whole philosophy of life was a complete fabrication and he could no longer live with the all the lies and the damage his policies had done to his country.

Others Democrats, the ones without a soul, are fine with that.

Usually, (not always) if someone has recurrent episodes of severe depression, enough to self-harm, those close to him know of an ongoing struggle. The family probably knows the whole story, but is not speaking publicly now. The ‘not speaking publicly now’ may just be grief. We’ll eventually find out more. In the age of the ‘net, it is less easy to make someone ‘Die Quickly’ w/o others noticing.

How did he kill himself. I hope it wasn’t by shooting himself in the back of the head a couple of times!
