Roles of the President's White House Economic Advisors

Bush's NEC chair (the position Larry Summers occupies now) outlines the vast number of roles advising the president on every issue.
It's pretty clear from the tone that Hennessey doesn't much approve of how Summers is handling his job, but given the incredible complexity of the bureaucracy and what we all know about Larry Summers' personality, those concerns make a lot of sense.
It's also interesting which policy did not go through normal advising channels (healthcare and cap-and-trade).
