"We need a big stimulus package," said President-elect Barack Obama today. You're preaching to the choir, Big O. But seriously folks, today Obama announced his starting lineup for his economic team. This groups of "assertive, bold personalities" will, hopefully, pull us out of this recession. (Though, as Barack points out, things will get worse before they get better. Joy.) Anyway, the team consists of Peter Orszag, director of the Office of Management and Budget; Timothy Geithner, treasury secretary; Lawrence Summers, head of the National Economic Council (NEC); and Christina Romer, Council of Economic Advisers (CEA) chairman. Romer, a handsome woman, is an economics professor at UC/Berkeley and the sole female voice on the team.
