Donald Marron

Marron is an economist in the Washington, DC area.  He currently speaks, writes, and consults about economic, budget, and financial issues.

From 2002 to early 2009, Marron served in various senior positions in the White House and Congress including:

  • Member of the President’s Council of Economic Advisers (CEA)
  • Acting Director of the Congressional Budget Office (CBO)
  • Executive Director of Congress’s Joint Economic Committee (JEC)

Before Marron’s government service, he had a varied career as a professor, consultant, and entrepreneur. In the mid-1990s, he taught economics and finance at the University of Chicago Graduate School of Business. He then spent about a year-and-a-half managing large antitrust cases (e.g., Pepsi vs. Coke) at Charles River Associates in Washington, DC. After that, Marron took the plunge into the world of new ventures, serving as Chief Financial Officer of a health care software start-up in Austin, TX. After that fascinating experience, he started my career in public service.

Marron received his Ph.D. in Economics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and my B.A. in Mathematics a couple miles down the road at Harvard.

Marron and his wife Esther love nature and travel.  For glimpses of their recent adventures, please click on over to or visit his website on Economics, Finance and Life.
