Obama’s own former adviser gives thumbs down on pushing up the minimum wage

Here is a thoughtful critique of the President’s minimum wage proposal, and this is from his former Chair of the President’s Council of Economic Advisers, Christina Romer that appeared in the New York Times on 3-2-13.  Of course, a few days ago, I posted this piece on the minimum wage here on Bastiat’s Bastions.  So, even one of the President’s most widely respected advisers, a long-time liberal economist, says there are better ways to help the poor, if that is the goal.
