“I think the president certainly needs someone who is capable of seeing the best in … a variety of viewpoints,” said Aaron Edlin, a Berkeley professor who works with Auerbach, calling him a “moderate” and “open-minded.” “So I do think that someone who is moderate and balanced is a very good choice for head of the CEA. There are enough partisans in Washington. I don’t see that one needs another one as head of the CEA.”
