The American Council for Capital Formation Center for Policy Research (ACCF CPR) commends the return of Kevin Hassett, former Chairman of President Trump’s Council of Economic Advisers, to the White House. Hassett also serves on the ACCF CPR Board of Scholars. He will be a temporary economic adviser to help the Trump administration address the economic fallout from the coronavirus pandemic.
“Kevin Hassett is highly regarded as an economist by his peers and an effective economic policy maker by current and prior colleagues,” said ACCF Center President and CEO Mark Bloomfield. “Our nation’s economy is facing one of its most critical tests and we need the best minds and steady hands to help navigate this crisis. Hassett’s depth and experience in tax and economic policy will be critical in the coming weeks. We are comforted that Kevin is part of the response team.”
