- Larry Summers: Distinguished Senior Fellow at the Center for American Progress, or CAP, and a Member of the Board of Directors at the Peterson Institute of International Economics, or PIIE (17% probability based on WPost prediction)
- Tim Geithner: Distinguished Fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations, or CFR (8% probability based on WPost prediction)
- Don Kohn: Senior Fellow, Economic Studies, at the Brookings Institution (5% probability based on WPost prediction)
Another big question: Will Ben Bernanke join a think tank? It seems that former Federal Reserve officials (including visiting fellows and consultants) are scattered at various think tanks, including the Peterson Institute for International Economics (PIIE; David Blanchflower, Joseph Gagnon, David Stockton), the Brookings Institution (Alice Rivlin, Don Kohn, Michael Klein), and American Enterprise Institute (AEI; Stephen Oliner, Phillip Swagel, Vincent Reinhart), to name a few.
