Obama ceases daily economic briefings

President Obama has stopped receiving daily economic briefings. Does this mean that Obama has dropped his focus on the economy?

I don’t think so. The economy isn’t national security. What did they have to tell him in daily briefings? What economic indicators are there that can be measured and reported daily, and that frequently change in informative ways?

No, I think those daily briefings were strictly for public relations, to show the president’s engagement with the problem. They were probably terminated quietly almost as soon as they began.
