Goolsbee Leaving as Top Economic Adviser

Had I known this, I might have been nicer yesterday:

Goolsbee Leaving as Top Economic Adviser

Then again, he was the chairman of the Council of Economic Advisors. Action is desperately needed to deal with the unemployment crisis, and it was disappointing to hear "excuses to do nothing based upon Republican talking points." We are still looking at years before we return to full employment if we stand by and do nothing, so let's hope his replacement is a strong advocate for dealing actively with unemployment problem.
