Just I Case You Missed It … Here’s another case of someone close to the Clinton’s ending it all on their own … hmmmm, does this add up to you?
It seems that another advisor to the Clinton Crime Family has decided to end his own life just months prior to the release of a new book.
According to the NY Times, Alan B. Krueger, who advised two presidents and helped lead economics toward a more scientific approach to research and policymaking, was found dead on Saturday at his home in Princeton, N.J. He was 58.
The cause was suicide, according to a statement by his family released by Princeton University, where Mr. Krueger taught for more than three decades.
The Princeton police said they were called to the home on Saturday morning and found Mr. Krueger unresponsive.
Mr. Krueger was an assistant secretary of the Treasury from 2009 to 2010, as President Barack Obama’s administration tried to lead the United States out of its worst recession since the Great Depression.
Mr. Obama later named him chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers, a post he held from 2011 to 2013. He was the Labor Department’s chief economist under President Bill Clinton from 1994 to 1995.
A labor economist by training, Mr. Krueger was part of a new wave of economists who pushed the field toward a more empirical mind-set, with an emphasis on data rather than theory. He applied that approach broadly: to education, health care, labor markets and terrorism, and even to more lighthearted subjects like the rising price of concert tickets. His latest book, due out in June, is on the economics of the music industry.
Reuters Reports: – Alan Krueger, a prominent Princeton University economics professor who advised U.S. Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, took his own life over the weekend, his family said in a statement on Monday. He was 58.
The statement did not elaborate about the circumstances of Krueger’s death, nor did the university when confirming it earlier in the day.
Krueger served in the last two Democratic administrations – as chief economist for the U.S. Department of Labor during the Clinton era and as chair of the White House Council of Economic Advisers for Obama.
“It is with tremendous sadness we share that Professor Alan B. Krueger, beloved husband, father, son, brother, and Princeton professor of economics took his own life over the weekend,” his family said in the statement furnished by the university. “The family requests the time and space to grieve and remember him.”
He had taught economics at Princeton since 1987. Last week, Krueger delivered a lecture at Stanford University in California on income distribution and labor market regulation titled “Why is Basic Universal Income So Controversial?”
“Alan was recognized as a true leader in his field, known and admired for both his research and teaching,” Princeton said in a statement.
An avid music fan, Krueger posted about Bruce Springsteen and other rock stars on Twitter and wove David Bowie into his lectures. He made this passion the subject of his latest research in his forthcoming book on economics and the music industry, due to be released in June.
I don’t know about you, but it just seems fishy that so many people close to the Clinton’s have decided to commit suicide.
