Economics gossip

1. Trouble with Peter Diamond's nomination to the Board of Governors. Whatever Senator Shelby's issue with Peter Diamond might be, I am absolutely certain it is not the one stated in the article, which is that he does not know enough macroeconomics.

2. The new Chief Economist at DOL is, I am told, Betsey Stevenson. Congrats, I think!
