Campus Reform | Biden taps Cornell prof who praised USSR for not having a 'gender pay gap there'

President Biden’s nominee for a key Treasury Department post believes that the free market does not always “know best.”

Saule Omarova — the Beth and Marc Goldberg Professor of Law at Cornell University and a 1989 graduate of Moscow State University — was tapped to serve as Comptroller of the Currency, which “charters, regulates, and supervises all national banks.”

The Kazakh-American, however, has nodded toward the Soviet economic system’s purported gender equality.


H/t instapundit & GR.

The COC is an important post. I don't know what our currency has to do with gender equity -- but I bet the soon to be debuted (I bet) Fed coins could have a lot to do with gender equity. You could make dollars worth more than a dollar to women and less than a dollar to men, if indeed you still have men and women. Not sure how you'd work that out. More work for law professors I guess.
