Obama to Get Daily Economic Briefing

President Barack Obama has asked his top advisers to brief him every morning on the condition of the economy, the White House reports.

The president receives a similar daily intelligence briefing.

The bad news: Keynesian Larry Summers will walk him through the day’s economic news each morning.

At the first briefing, in addition to Summers, in attendance was Vice President Joe Biden, White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, Budget Director Peter Orszag, Domestic Policy Director Melody Barnes and Biden’s economic adviser Jared Bernstein.

No Hayek, Mises or Murphy in this group.
