Biden Administration Alumni Bharat Ramamurti Named Senior Adviser at the American Economic Liberties Project

  • The former deputy director of the National Economic Council was a key member of the president’s economic team.

Bharat Ramamurti, former deputy director of the National Economic Council has been appointed Senior Adviser for Economic Strategy at the American Economic Liberties Project. Throughout his career, the Indian American has been “a vocal advocate for economic justice and has contributed significantly to legislative efforts aimed at creating a more competitive and equitable economic system,” the American Economic Liberties Project said.

Ramamurti said he’s “excited to help advise an organization that has played a critical role in tackling one of the most important economic policy issues of our time: growing corporate concentration and its impact on prices.” He noted that the nonprofit has, “in its few short years, built an impressive team of strategists, researchers, and legal experts that has helped rein in junk fees across industries, allowed small businesses to compete on a more level playing field, and taken on anti-competitive conduct.” He’s “thrilled to try to build” on his work at the White House during which the Biden administration “took great strides to promote competition across industries,” he added. 

Faiz Shakir, Interim Executive Director of the American Economic Liberties Project said the organization is “thrilled” to welcome Ramamurti’s “expertise, and excited to add someone who understands how to maneuver government authorities to make change happen.” Noting that Ramamurti “understands that robust competition is the cornerstone of a healthy economy and the importance of returning antitrust back to the people,” he scribes him as “one of the key architects of the Biden administration’s competition agenda, where he helped drive the president’s whole-of-government approach to tackling corporate concentration across the economy.
