“Jim is one of the nation's most highly respected economists and has focused extensively on energy and climate policy questions both in the Administration and academia,” said Jason Bordoff, founding director of the Center on Global Energy Policy. “He is a model for combining academic rigor and real-world research, which is the core of the Center's mission. It's very exciting to have him join our rapidly growing team.”
