Boskin Returns to CEA, Virtually

Stanford’s Michael Boskin chaired the Council of Economic Advisers under George H.W. Bush. Yesterday we learned that Boskin will once again chair the CEA — for Gaia Online, not the United States. That’s right, Gaia, a teen-oriented role-playing site, has a Council of Economic Advisors.* It consists of Boskin, Stanford economics PhD candidate Saar Golde, and a member to be named later. No word if the members and their staff will be housed in a virtual Old Executive Office Building or will produce a virtual Economic Report of the President. (Thanks to Lynne for the pointer.)

* The real CEA, as former staffers (like me) know, spells its name “Advisers,” not “Advisors.” I’m sure Boskin will insist on the correction.
