Economist Glenn HubbardPlay
Economist R. Glenn Hubbard has thrown a long shadow in the White House of George W. Bush and its economic policy. As chairman of the President's council of economic advisers, he was deep in the tax- cutting fray of the first Bush term, lending his gold- plated academic credentials to the Bush tax cut juggernaut.
Hubbard is a brilliant, conservative, pro-growth economist not afraid to wade into political waters. Now his name is on a very short list of publicly-discussed potential successors to Federal Reserve Bank chairman Alan Greenspan, who steps down in January. Also, his tax cuts are facing massive deficits and hurricane winds.
Tune in for a conversation with economist and policy prime mover, Glenn Hubbard.
