Treasury Chief Economist Alan Krueger Returning to Princeton

Alan Krueger, the U.S. Treasury Department’s chief economist, is leaving the post next month to return to Princeton University.

Krueger, 50, the Treasury’s assistant secretary for economic policy, is going back to Princeton because his two-year leave of absence from the university is ending, Treasury spokeswoman Sandra Salstrom said in an e-mail today.
