White House Economic Report Credits Research By Super Hero Interns


Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep with a detail in a White House economic report. This report by the president's Council of Economic Advisers forecasts strong economic growth and also gave thanks to interns for research and fact-checking. The interns listed included Peter Parker, Bruce Wayne and Steve Rogers - yes, the civilian names of Spider-Man, Batman and Captain America; interns. Apparently, this is a tradition since last year's interns included Captain Kirk. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
