—US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to Hoover Board of Overseers
Vice President Mike Pence, interviewed by Distinguished Policy Fellow Peter Robinson at the White House Executive Office Building, called Hoover a “legendary institution” and challenged Hoover and its supporters to “take the story of freedom right at socialism.”
Hoover Senior Fellow Kevin Hassett, former chairman of the White House Council of Economic Advisers (CEA), interviewed three members of the CEA before Hoover Overseers at the White House Executive Office Building—Tomas Philipson (CEA acting chairman), Hoover senior fellow on leave Josh Rauh (CEA principal chief economist), and incoming Hoover fellow Tyler Goodspeed (CEA member). The three economists discussed current economic prospects and the possible impact of COVID-19.
Larry Kudlow, director of the President’s National Economic Council, engaged in a substantive discussion on economic policy with Hoover overseers. He states that the Trump administration is “unwinding the power of government and letting people be free to succeed.”
