Reagan wants to abolish economic advisers panel

He said Mr. Reagan expressed his view in an interview to be published this weekend in the conservative magazine Human Events.

Mr. Reagan has not replaced Martin Feldstein, who resigned as CEA chairman after publicly criticizing administration economic policy.
