Evercore’s Tedeschi to Join Biden’s White House as CEA Economist
(Bloomberg) -- 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.
