The top player in President-elect Barack Obama’s transition team is asking for comments about what people think about the economy.
Christine Romer, a University of California at Berkeley economics professor who is set to become chair of Obama’s Council of Economic Advisers, has started the conversation in a Web forum on Obama’s Change.gov transition Web site.
“What are the economic pressures that you’re facing in you’re lives?” Romer asks.
At press time, participants had submitted 485 comments.
Many participants complained about lack of access to affordable health insurance.
