Economic Theory in the White House: An Index of 66 Instances in One Year

Summary:
It is difficult to exaggerate the usefulness of Chicago Price Theory for economic analysis in the White House.  Below is an index of 66 instances that I can remember where Chicago Price Theory was directly and specifically applied to analysis (usually publicly released) of economic issues over a one year time frame.  As an example of what I mean by "directly and specifically," compare Chicago Price Theory's Figure 19-3 to Figure 7-2 in the 2019 Economic Report of the President. Figure 19-3 from Chicago Price TheoryFrom the 2019 Economic Report of the President (the second derivative of the after-AI demand curve is part of the discussion in both sources). ]]>Economic issue analyzed by CEA CPT pages ACA employer mandate 75 - 75 Agency Compliance with Circular A-4 131 -
