President Obama recently appointed 15 people to key administrative jobs using a “blunt political tool” called recess appointment.
Among the new appointees is Jeffrey Goldstein, who has been appointed to the position of Under Secretary for Domestic Finance. Goldstein began teaching economics at the University in 1982, but left a year later to join the public sector.
Goldstein is the former Managing Director of the private equity investment firm Hellman & Friedman LLC. He also served as Managing Director and Chief Financial Officer at the World Bank from 1999 to 2004.
He has also worked at the Brookings Institute and the Department of the Treasury.
