I believe Janet Yellen has been chosen to be the person "holding the bag" when the roof falls in.
My point: They'll BLAME her when the inevitable financial debacle occurs.

The Federal Reserve makes my head hurt trying to make sense of it. Please advise when we should start stuffing cash in our mattresses withdrawn from our banks.
Lindsey Graham voter for her. Hand in hand with the likes of Susan Collins. And Huckabee DARES call Graham “a great conservative?” Graham is already toast, shame on Huckabee!!!!

elevating an advocate of fighting unemployment and a backer of the central bank's efforts to spur the economy with low interest rates and massive bond purchases
How does the Fed 'fight unemployment'?
And massive bond purchases, $85 billion a month, are only going to be bought back by the banks under new Fed regulation to have more liquid asset on hand, as I recall an article I've read here.
Fed Unanimously Adopts Bank Liquidity Proposal
The banks would hold a buffer of liquid assets - such as government bonds - to draw on to ensure they can meet withdrawals by depositors, to post collateral due to credit rating downgrades and to meet other needs.
U.S. government debt and excess reserves held at the Fed are deemed the most liquid under the Fed's proposal, while claims on government-sponsored enterprises, such as mortgage finance giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, are less liquid and may make up only 40 percent of the buffer.
