White House economic advisor R. Glenn Hubbard called a newspaper report saying he will step down and be replaced by Harvard economist N. Gregory Mankiw "a bit premature." Reacting to a report in the Wall Street Journal that said he would resign as chairman of the White House Council of Economic Advisors, Hubbard told reporters, "It's too soon to write my obituary." Hubbard aide Phillip Swagel confirmed that the economist has "no immediate plans" to leave his White House post.

R. Glenn Hubbard, chairman of the White House Council of Economic Advisers and the sole survivor of President Bush's original economic team, resigned Wednesday. He will be replaced by conservative Harvard economist N. Gregory Mankiw. Hubbard, 44, was the chief architect of the president's dividend tax cut plan, which the administration estimates would slash federal levies by more than $380 billion over 10 years and which many in Congress believe would reduce them still further.

Daniels Jr. said Tuesday that he will resign, completing a clean sweep of President Bush's original economic team on the eve of a legislative fight over Bush's latest tax cut proposals and only months before the start of the 2004 presidential election season. Daniels, a conservative favorite and former political operative for President Reagan, told Bush of his plans to step down within 30 days in a phone call and later a short letter Tuesday morning.

WASHINGTON -- More than 100 conservative economists will call on Congress to approve an immigration overhaul, highlighting the potential economic benefits. The letter by the American Action Forum, to be released Thursday, is the latest volley from conservative economic thinkers, who have been divided on the immigration overhaul legislation making its way through the Senate. “Immigration reform's positive impact on population growth, labor force growth, housing, and other markets will lead to more rapid economic growth,” wrote the economists, including Douglas Holtz-Eakin, the foundation's president, who is a former director of the Congressional Budget Office and a former advisor to Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.)

WASHINGTON -- A group of 11 conservative economists are publicly backing Jason Furman's nomination to head the White House Council of Economic Advisers. "Although we often disagree with the administration's policies and differ with Jason on a number of issues, we respect him as a superb analytical economist," the economists, all affiliated with the American Enterprise Institute think tank, wrote in a blog post Tuesday. "If the Senate confirms his nomination to be the president's chief economic adviser, we are confident that he will serve the president and the nation with distinction," they said.
