Some Prominent Economists for Obama

We haven't kept track of this systematically, but for those looking for a few names:

David Cutler
Brad DeLong
Austan Goolsbee
Jeffrey Liebman
Paul Volcker
Most Democratic economists Greg Mankiw knows

As far as I can tell, there aren't any prominent economists who have endorsed Clinton. (I'm using "economist" to mean someone who as a Ph.D. in economics.) Her lead economic advisor is Gene Sperling, a lawyer who worked in her husband's White House. MIT economist Jonathan Gruber is one of her health care advisors.
