R. Glenn Hubbard
R. Glenn Hubbard was the former Chairman of the President’s Council of Economic Advisers (2001-2003). He was instrumental in making the arguments for passing the 2003 "Bush Tax Cuts", i.e., the extant regressive US tax policy. He was touted as one of two leading candidates to succeed Alan Greenspan as Chairman of the Federal Reserve Board.
Hubbard was one of the "academic experts" and former economics advisors interviewed by Charles Ferguson for Inside Job, the documentary about the 2008 financial debacle. Hubbard bristled when challenged on the nature of his policy recommendations and the long list of corporate affiliations; he didn't seem to think that it amounted to a conflict of interest.
