In December 2007, NRO published a Kudlow article entitled Bush Boom Continues, in which he asserted the economy would continue to expand for years to come. The Great Recession, the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression, began that month.
Kudlow served as one in a rotating set of hosts on the CNBC show America Now, which began airing in November 2001. In May 2002, the show was renamed Kudlow & Cramer, and Kudlow and Jim Cramer became the permanent hosts. In January 2005, Cramer left to host his own show, Mad Money, and the program’s name was changed the next month to Kudlow & Company. The program went on hiatus in October 2008, returned in January 2009 as The Kudlow Report, and ended its run on CNBC in March 2014.

In February 2021, Larry Kudlow joined Fox Business Network to host a new weekday program.
Larry Kudlow National Economic Council
Kudlow joined Americans for Democratic Action chair Joseph Duffey’s in 1970 “New Politics” senatorial campaign in Connecticut which also attracted an “A-list crowd of young Democrats”, including Yale University law student Bill Clinton, John Podesta, and Michael Medved, another future conservative.
Duffey was a leading anti-war politician during the Vietnam war era. Duffey’s campaign manager called Kudlow a “brilliant organizer”. In 1976, he worked on the U.S. Senate campaign of Daniel Patrick Moynihan, along with Tim Russert, against Conservative Party incumbent James L. Buckley, brother of William F. Buckley, Jr.
Kudlow began his career as a staff economist at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, taking a position “as a junior economist in a job where a master’s degree wasn’t required”. He worked in the division of the Fed that handled open market operations.
During the first term of the Reagan administration (1981–1985), Kudlow was associate director for economics and planning in the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), a part of the Executive Office of the President. In April 2005, New York Governor George Pataki included Kudlow in a six-member state tax commission.
Kudlow’s name was floated by Republicans as a potential Senate candidate in either Connecticut or New York in 2016. In October 2015, U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal, in an email to supporters, attacked Kudlow as “a champion of big corporations and big money” despite Kudlow’s not announcing a run. In early December 2015, Jack Fowler of National Review created a 527 organization that encouraged Kudlow to run.
Kudlow was appointed by Donald Trump to be Director of the National Economic Council in March 2018, succeeding Gary Cohn. He assumed office on April 2, 2018. Also in April, Kudlow alleged that U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley had announced that the U.S. would soon sanction Russia due to “momentary confusion.” After Haley contradicted Kudlow’s claim, Kudlow called her to apologize.
In April 2018, Kudlow stated, “The trouble I had with the Obama program was it was all spending.” However, about 35% of the stimulus was tax relief, including a $116 billion income tax cut. Kudlow asserted on June 29, 2018, that “capital investment, you know, for new jobs and better careers, [is] flowing in from all corners of the world”, though foreign direct investment into America declined significantly during the two years through August 2019.
On August 28, 2018, after Trump accused Google of rigging search results to show information biased against him, Kudlow told reporters, “We’re taking a look at” regulating Google. On February 25, 2020, as a coronavirus pandemic was emerging as a global pandemic, Kudlow stated, “We have contained this, I won’t say airtight but pretty close to airtight.” In June 2020, amid the George Floyd protests against racism and police brutality, Kudlow said, “I don’t believe there is systemic racism in the U.S.
