Good choice

Andrew Samwick is the Rockefeller Center's new Director. I've not taken a class with him, but by all accounts he's a fantastic professor: both a great teacher and a great scholar. His website reveals him to have a sense of humor as well. As the chief economist on the staff of the President's Council of Economic Advisors, he also brings valuable real world experience to the job. This is the man, by the way, who assigned the class of 2006 Milton and Rose Friedman's Free to Choose as their summer reading. Conservatives who whine about liberal bias in academia (and I confess to doing that from time to time) ought to take heart from this appointment.
