CRL Supports Nomination of Jason Furman as Chair of Council of Economic Advisers

Jason Furman recognized early on that poor regulatory oversight of abusive practices in subprime mortgage lending was a leading contributor to the economic crisis. He has since spoken out strongly about the importance of consumer safeguards to a sound financial system. We urge the Senate to confirm Mr. Furman to lead the Council of Economic Advisers.
