Evercore’s Tedeschi to Join Biden’s White House as CEA Economist

Ernie Tedeschi, managing director and policy economist for Evercore ISI, announced Friday that he will be joining the Council of Economic Advisers as a senior policy economist.

Tedeschi, who formerly served as an economist at the U.S. Treasury Department, has been a prominent economic voice in the pandemic. His analysis is often published in the New York Times, and his columns have spanned a range of economic topics including the minimum wage and the impact of school closures on mothers’ participation in the workforce.

He will be joining a team that already includes Chair Cecilia Rouse, members Heather Boushey and Jared Bernstein, and senior adviser Martha Gimbel.

Tedeschi will start March 15. The White House didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
