The Next Great Economics Blog

Keith Hennessey has finally obliged all his friends and admirers and started his own blog. Keith has been a key player in conservative economic circles since the mid-90s, as a staffer on the Senate Budget Committee, then in Trent Lott’s office while Lott was majority leader, and then for six years as a senior economic advisor in the Bush White House (as deputy director and then director of the National Economic Council). He’s the real deal: a numbers guy (his formal education is actually in math, not economics) with an eye for creative policy solutions, a conservative’s commitment to growth, and endless patience for explaining arcane policy issues to laymen. He’s a careful analyst and a straight shooter who sifts through the facts and figures: fundamentally a wonk, not a political guy.

He has only gotten started, but you’ll want to make his new site a regular stop on your “what in the world is going on with our economy?” web surfing.

Yuval Levin is the director of social, cultural, and constitutional studies at the American Enterprise Institute and the editor of National Affairs.
