Dr. Krueger Goes To Washington

Alan Krueger, the Princeton economics professor who devoted much of his studies to the economics of concert ticket sales, has a new job: Assistant Secretary of Economic Policy at the U.S. Treasury.

This isn’t the first time Dr. Krueger has been involved with government. He was chief economist at the U.S. Department of Labor from 1994 to 1995.

Krueger was also counselor to Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner prior to his current appointment.

Krueger was the keynote speaker at the 2002 Concert Industry Consortium, where he revealed findings from a commissioned study on ticket buying trends.

He completed another study in 2007 that concluded the size of the secondary ticketing market is often exaggerated.
