The first chicki fed reserve will be hired on Wednesday, 67 yrs old. The liberals lover her but to be honest I know nothing about her, I will check her out and her "views." Yellen, 67, has extensive support from Senate Democrats, more than one third of whom signed a letter earlier this year urging the president to pick her. The letter was also seen as a warning to Obama not to pick former Treasury Secretary Larry Summers, an odds-on favorite for the job. Here's an odd quote.....because this is what is happening now under Hussein. Those Democrats saw Summers as overly involved in deregulation of the financial sector during then-President Bill Clinton’s term, and insufficiently committed to using the Fed’s power over interest rates to promote job creation.
