— October 30, 2017
Excerpt from The New York Times -- "'I think it’s far more important to understand and appreciate high-quality economic analysis than it is to have a Ph.D.,' said Kim Schoenholtz, a professor of economics at New York University. He noted that most Treasury secretaries had not held degrees in economics. 'What distinguishes the most effective secretaries is skill at bringing in talented personnel and appreciation for the value of informed economic analyses,' he said."
