The FRONTLINE Interview: Christina Romer

  • Aired: 04/24/2012
  • 01:00:03
  • Rating: NR
Shortly before Obama became president, Romer, his incoming chair of the Council of Economic Advisers, projected that the $787 billion stimulus package would curb unemployment at 8 percent. (It has remained above 8 percent since February 2009.) In this interview, she laments that she and other top advisers underestimated the extent of economic damage caused by the crisis.
