Peter Orszag at NYU Law School

I guess this is public, since Wikipedia has it.  Peter Orszag will be a Distinguished Scholar at NYU Law School during the upcoming academic year.  Peter, who is currently vice chairman of global banking at Citigroup, recently served as the director of the Office of Management and Budget.  He is truly a leading economic policy expert, whose interests include (without being limited to) healthcare, Social Security, and the federal budget, just to name a few.  Among other things, he will participate at least occasionally in our Tax Policy Colloquium - at which he presented a paper on Social Security reform, some years ago, and also was a co-author of a paper on refundable tax credits that Lily Batchelder presented.

By the way, we have a pretty good lineup for the colloquium next year (late January through early May 2013, meeting on Tuesdays from 4 to 6 pm), and I will be able to post it shortly.

Perhaps I should try to resist the inclination to add an institutionally self-aggrandizing comment here about how all this only adds to NYU Law School's place as a leading national center for expert tax and related policy discussion, blah blah blah, etcetera.  But I suppose you can consider the comment made, and I would certainly consider it justified.
