Statement by Federal Reserve Board Vice Chair Richard H. Clarida on the passing of Alan Krueger
For release at 12:45 p.m. EDT
I'm deeply saddened by the death of Alan Krueger of Princeton University, whom I have known since graduate school more than 30 years ago. As an economist, he inspired his colleagues by combining a zeal for academic rigor with a passion for public service. Alan made a difference and inspired everyone who learned from his research or benefited from the policies he developed. His untimely passing represents an enormous loss to our profession. I extend heartfelt sympathy to his family.
