Lisa Simon Husband (Alan Krueger)
Lisa married her husband Alan Kruger in 1983. Alan was an American economist who served as the chair of President Barack Obama’s Council of Economic Advisers as well as chief economist at the Department of Labor under President Bill Clinton.
Alan is also known for his work which includes a paper he co-authored with the economist David Card in 1993 that challenged orthodoxy around the effects of the minimum wage. Through a natural experiment comparing employment in fast food restaurants across state lines after New Jersey raised its minimum wage, the pair found that the number of jobs did not decrease, as classical economics would have assumed.
He also wrote a book “Myth and Measurement” and together with the study helped advance a movement toward the use of empirical measurement in economics, rather than relying heavily on theory to predict the impact of policy measures.
Much of Alan’s work focused on issues such as education (in a study on the value of an elite education, he and economist Stacy Dale *96 found that “you are equally as likely to succeed, in terms of future income, if you go to Harvard as if you apply to Harvard and get rejected”) and employment and wages (in two surveys of fast-food chains in New Jersey, he and Card found no evidence that a minimum-wage hike reduced employment or caused chains not to open new restaurants).
Alan also did some research on the music industry “I thought, can I learn about economics from this? Within a week I arranged with the [Princeton] Survey Research Center to question 250 fans tailgating at the game about how they got their tickets, how much they were willing to pay.” He wrote his findings on ‘Times’ blog which intrigued the editor of Pollstar, a trade publication for the concert-tour industry, who invited Krueger to have a look at Pollstar’s data on 300,000 pop and rock concerts.
Lisa Simon Children
Lisa together with her husband Alan had two children Benjamin Krueger and Sydney Krueger.
