Gossip from the Bush Administration

The Washington Post reports that the Bush Administration is courting James Poterba to replace N. Gregory Mankiw at the Council of Economic Advisers.  Harvey Rosen may head the bipartisan committee on tax reform, among other tidbits. 

Today’s WSJ lists four candidates to succeed Greenspan, all four are renowned economists: Martin Feldstein, Glenn Hubbard, John Taylor, and Ben Bernanke.

I’m not confirming any of these speculations, just passing them along.
