Senate Democrats Get Their Fed Choice: Janet Yellen

Senate Democrats have gotten their pick for the next chairman of the Federal Reserve: Janet L. Yellen.

The current Fed vice chairwoman has strong support among Senate Democrats, many of whom had been urging the president to pick her instead of Lawrence Summers, who withdrew from consideration in September.

“She’s an excellent choice and I believe she’ll be confirmed by a wide margin,” said Sen. Charles E. Schumer, D-N.Y.

The Fed’s policy of quantitative easing, where it is buying $85 billion a month in bonds in an effort to bring down unemployment, has been controversial and will surely be a subject of Yellen’s confirmation hearings.

The president will make the announcement at 3 p.m. Wednesday in the East Room, according to a White House official. Current Chairman Ben S. Bernanke will attend.

    I was just looking for this information for some time. After 6 hours of continuous Googleing, at last I got it in your site. I wonder what’s the lack of Google strategy that do not rank this kind of informative web sites in top of the list. Normally the top websites are full of garbage.

    Hi! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing months of hard work due to no backup. Do you have any solutions to protect against hackers?

    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You definitely know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your site when you could be giving us something informative to read?
