American Enterprise Institute (AEI) president Arthur Brooks announced that Stephen Oliner and J.D. Kleinke have joined the American Enterprise Institute (AEI) to work on U.S. economic policy and health care policy, respectively.
Stephen Oliner has joined AEI as a resident scholar after serving in a number of high-level positions during a 25-year career at the Federal Reserve. Most recently, he served as a senior adviser in the Division of Research and Statistics and was actively involved in the Fed's analysis of the U.S. economy and financial markets. At AEI, Oliner will continue his research on a wide range of topics, including monetary policy, business capital spending, productivity growth, commercial real estate and the measurement of capital.
An expert on health care business strategy and entrepreneurship, J.D. Kleinke was instrumental in the creation of four health care information organizations. He has also advised both established and start-up companies on health care business, product and technology strategy. As a resident fellow at AEI, he will study the interplay between health policy, health care market dynamics and health venture formation; the influence of information technology and medical technology on the overall health economy; and the impact of medical culture on health care organizations, markets and public health.
"We are delighted to welcome Stephen Oliner to AEI," said AEI President Arthur Brooks. "His expert, insider knowledge of the Federal Reserve coupled with his cutting-edge research on real estate and financial markets make him an ideal addition to AEI's powerhouse economic team led by Kevin Hassett. Steve’s work will enhance AEI’s commitment to public policy research that is both rooted in the principles of free enterprise and highly relevant to the nation's most urgent economic challenges."
"I am also thrilled to announce J.D. Kleinke’s addition to AEI's health policy team. J.D. brings even more horsepower to our team, offering innovative solutions to some of our country’s most challenging health care problems. As a medical economist, health care information entrepreneur, business strategist and author, he is perfectly positioned to provide timely, informed insight about America's fast-changing health care system. J.D. knows that no matter what happens to the Affordable Care Act, all Americans want a smarter, better health care system," said Brooks.
