Former Federal Reserve Chairman Paul Volcker is ending his term as chairman of President Barack Obama’s economic advisory panel next month.
File this under “Yet another missed opportunity by the Obama administration.”
The highly regarded Volcker was mostly ignored as a voice on financial policy to the White House. Further, the recovery advisory board seemed to be a neutered.
