President to Nominate Joshua Wright to FTC

You can read a New York Law Journal report here.  Wright is a professor at George Mason.  The article highlights his devotion to Chicago-school economics and reports that he rejects the use of behavioral economics in antitrust. The article also opines that if Governor Romney wins the presidency, Wright would be a potential FTC Chairman. Wright's SSRN page is here and includes links to some consumer protection pieces, including one that claims that the then-proposed CFPB would make it both harder and more expensive for consumers to borrow.
