Obama to Nominate Justice’s Shapiro to Economic Advisory Panel

Feb. 23 (Bloomberg) -- President Barack Obama will nominate Carl Shapiro, the deputy assistant attorney general for economics at the antitrust division of the Justice Department, to his Council of Economic Advisers, White House press secretary Jay Carney said.

Shapiro, who is also an economics professor at the University of California at Berkeley, will replace Cecilia Rouse, who is leaving the panel at the end of next month.

Obama previously nominated University of Maryland Professor Katharine Abraham to the vacancy on the panel created when Austan Goolsbee was named the council’s chairman last September.

The nominations of Shapiro and Graham are subject to confirmation by the Senate.
