Erica Groshen

Some conservatives took offense at labor economist Erica Groshen's choice of summer camp (!!!) for her kids.

The general rule applies here, as they should know: economists of any team > pretty much anyone else who might get appointed to a government position.

Really, the folks at Americans for Limited Government should have something more serious to do with their time and their donors' money. There are plenty of genuinely wretched appointments, and plenty of bits of government that could use limiting, in every administration. This isn't one of them.

And congrats to Erica on the BLS gig.
