Warren, Brookings Under Fire for Economist’s Resignation

Elizabeth Warren

Media pundits and expert economists are criticizing Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) and the Brookings Institution for the way in which the liberal think tank forced the resignation of a respected economist who opposed a regulation supported by Warren.

Additionally, questions have arisen about whether Brookings is enforcing internal rules regarding affiliation with the think tank evenhandedly in the wake of the dismissal.
