Peter Orszag To Write New York Times Column

Former director of the Office of Management and Budget Peter Orszag will join the New York Times as a columnist, the newspaper announced Friday.

Orszag, who left the Obama administration this summer, will write one to two columns per month on economic and domestic issues for the paper.

"We welcome Peter Orszag's expertise and insight to our Op-Ed lineup," editorial page editor Andrew Rosenthal said in the announcement. "As a Washington insider and one of the most recognizable names in economics, his writing will provide a unique perspective on the national landscape."

Orszag's first op-ed will appear this coming Tuesday.
