Joshua D. Rauh, a senior fellow at the Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research (SIEPR) and the Ormond Family Professor of Finance at the Stanford Graduate School of Business, has been appointed to serve on the Congressional Budget Office Panel of Economic Advisers.
The advisory role, announced on April 27, is generally a two-year term and can be reappointed. The CBO relies on this panel to learn about important analytical issues in the advisers’ areas of expertise and calls on them for feedback on the agency’s economic forecast and other cost analyses.
Rauh, who is also a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, specializes in empirical studies of corporate investment and financial structure, including applications to private equity and venture capital. He has also conducted extensive research on the financial structure of pension funds and their sponsors, and the measurement of public sector pension liabilities.
He formerly served at the White House, where he was principal chief economist on the President’s Council of Economic Advisers in 2019-20, and has testified before Congress on topics such as pension systems and public finance.
