Janet Yellen to be named Fed chair on Wednesday: White House
cnbc.com ^ | 10/8/13

Posted on 10/08/2013 5:20:01 PM PDT by Nachum

After months of speculation, it's official: Janet Yellen will be the next chair of the Federal Reserve, succeeding Ben Bernanke, the White House said late Tuesday.

President Obama will make the announcement on Wednesday at 3pm ET, the White House said. Both Janet Yellen and current Fed chair Ben Bernanke are expected to attend. That announcement will be right after the Fed releases the minutes from its last meeting, due out at 2pm ET.

I thought Geithner really wanted this job after Ben retired.

Is his gig at CFR too lucrative to give up?

Yep, not only is she Jewish, she is also a self loathing liberal Jew. The worst type.

Daughter of Anna (née Blumenthal) and Julius Yellen, a doctor.

That would be a Yes, Judism passes from the mother.

Nominated.
Of course she can’t be confirmed until Harry Reid’s barricade of the House minibills is over.

And her faith has to do with what in regards to the nomination to be Fed Chair?

Do her policies stem from her religious beliefs or her political leanings?

Wow she’s OLD. Didn’t realize how old - 67. Another one percenter who won’t retire and let some kid from Harvard Biz School with 150 grand in student loans have a job, LOL.

It’s not the faith, it’s the ethnic neuroticism. If she had a faith, she would.nt be so scary. The worst enemy Israel can have is yet another self-loathing and politically powerful American Jew.

So how did she get to be an assistant professor at Berkeley if she had been an assistant professor at Harvard already for 5 years? Very strange.

"Nice. Another person who has never worked in the private sector regulating the private sector."

She probably has plenty of experience in shopping, though.

Negative interest rates mean putting off retirement until forever, and Yellen favors negative nominal interest rates. Ben just had negative real rates.

Feel free to call me an idiot...but I have no idea what ethnic neuroticism even means. And I have less of a clue on how I would realize that’s what was meant by asking if Yellen was a Jew. But then, I’m a self admitted idiot. / s

Nope: big time leveraging of ExtortionCare transfering the Fed MBS buying right onto the backs of real working legal citizens.

On the plus side, however...Ms. Yellen does appear to be at least nominally heterosexual. As opposed to Elena Kagan, who was nominated to the Supreme Court primarily because she is a lesbian.

Granted...a person's sexuality is a very poor criterion upon which to base their nomination to a public office...but Barry the Boob doesn't seem to have much more in the intellectual hopper.

Hating one’s self is absolutely neurotic. If you don’t agree, I guess you should stop reading now. You don’t have to look much farther than the media to see Jews that hate Israel and Judaism. Think jon Stewart. They do like the cuteness of being of Jewish ancestry and being a snide atheist. That’s just the first example that comes to mind.
