Charles L. Schultze, economist in two Democratic administrations, dies at 91 - Washington Post

Monday, October 10, 2016

Jimmy Carter as chairman of the President’s Council of Economic Advisers from 1977 to 1981.Between and after his years of government service, Dr. Schultze was affiliated with the Brookings Institution public policy center, where most recently he was senior fellow emeritus. He also was a past president of the American Economic Association.Better known among economists than to the public, Dr. Schultze saw government as able to ameliorate economic problems, but he took a more restrained view of what it could achieve than some Democrats do. He nudged the policymaking process in the direction of less heavy-handed regulation and toward using market prices to achieve the government’s goals.He believed that the three-member Council of Economic Advisers had to choose its battles carefully as it sought to win over the president in policy debates that sometimes pitted it against Cabinet secretaries, powerful congressional Democrats or private-sector interests.William D. Nordhaus, an economics professor at Yale University who served on the council with Dr. Schultze, summarized Dr. Schultze’s temperate approach: “One of the things you have to accept is that you’re not going to get the first best. You can shoot for the second best — and you can prevent the worst.”As an economist, Dr. Schultze was more problem solver than theorist. Like other councils of economic advisers, the Schultze team’s effect was incremental, rarely dramatic.He gained a reputation for being precise and meticulous about admitting what he didn’t know — and for being, occasionally, blunt and impolitic.In October 1979, when inflation had climbed to 13 percent a year, Dr. Schultze, the Carter admini...
