My only reservations with Bernanke are a couple of his speeches as a Fed Governor:
The Global Saving Glut and the U.S. Current Account Deficit — was just so much political blather. It completely fails intellectually.
Deflation: Making Sure "It" Doesn’t Happen Here –was hopefully just jawboning. I assume that threatening to drop follars onto the landscape from helicopters to fight deflation was merely an amusing visual, and not actual monetary policy.
This means that that there is still an opening for a new Governor . . .
(I know who it is going to be, but I am sworn to secrecy ; )
Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.
