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 ; )
