Volcker and Goolsbee

President-elect Barack Obama will appoint former Federal Reserve
Chairman Paul Volcker on Wednesday to be the chairman of a new White
House advisory board tasked with helping to lift the nation from
recession and stabilize financial markets, Democratic officials say.

University of Chicago economist Austan Goolsbee, one of Mr. Obama's
longest-serving policy advisers, will serve as the board's staff
director, along with his duties as a member of the White House Council
of Economic Advisers.

Here is more information.  That gives us an NEC, a CEA, and now this new Board.
