WASHINGTON - White House chief economist Austan Goolsbee said on Monday he would step down from his post and return to teaching later this year, in a setback for President Barack Obama as he tries to lift the US economy.

The White House said Goolsbee, chairman of Obama's Council of Economic Advisers, would depart in time to begin the upcoming academic year at the University Of Chicago where is a professor of economics in the graduate school of business.
