A Wednesday drop cited former Clinton and Obama economist Alan Krueger’s suicide last weekend. He was Chairman of Obama’s Council of Economic Advisers and a Member of the Cabinet from 2011 to 2013.
“It is with tremendous sadness we share that Professor Alan B. Krueger, beloved husband, father, son, brother, and Princeton professor of economics took his own life over the weekend,’ a statement from his family reads.”
Start a list.
While I wrote yesterday of a mysterious JPMorgan banker’s death and was aware of Krueger’s suicide but I still do not see it as a connection to the deep state.
Why Krueger’s death, at 58, was cited in the drops as an example of reactions to the pending news of Obama Administration officials criminal corruption, is beyond any research I can find.
Krueger was a Princeton professor of economics a colleague of Obama’s ex-Fed chief Ben Bernanke. He also worked in the Clinton White House.
His primary focus was on labor salaries (minimum wage) and its effects on the broader economy and was a member of the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, which produces the monthly unemployment rate.
I’ll leave it there for now. Rest in peace, Mr. Krueger.
