U.S. chief economist resigns Goolsbee Obama

The chief economic advisers of U.S. President Barack Obama, Austan Goolsbee, has announced that he will leave his role at the White House to return to teach at the University of Chicago. The choice of Goolsbee would be attached to the end of his period of leave from the university, after which he would lose the chair.

A tile which increases the difficulties of the U.S. presidency in combating the economic crisis, not comforting, especially after the unemployment data released in recent days: 9.1 percent of the U.S. workforce does not have a job. Goolsbee, 41, was economic adviser to Barack Obama since he was a senator from Illinois and was currently the President of the Council of Economic Advisors, a consulting team for the presidency consists of three economists.

It is not the first member of the board to abandon the role under President Obama: last year alone, Goolsbee was appointed to the post by Christina Romer, she returned to teaching law.
