Under-appreciated Economists

In his best-selling memoir, The Age of Turbulence (Penguin Press, 2007), Alan Greenspan singled out David J. Stockton, head researcher at the Fed since 2000. “He never sought nor received the press that Fed governors get, but when the governors gave speeches, it was his forecast of the U.S. economy that Fed watchers were getting. We governors learned to see him as the indispensable, behind-the-scenes staffer”(p. 250).
