The Initiative would like to acknowledge the late Alan Krueger who served as a member of its National Advisory Council. Dr. Krueger was a distinguished academic and devoted public servant. He served most recently as a Professor of Political Economy at Princeton University and previously as chairman of the White House Council of Economic Advisers and as Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Economic Policy. Dr. Krueger’s work continues to have a significant impact on public policy and the field of economic research, and we remain grateful for his insights, participation, and friendship.
