Did Obama Make the Right Choice in Re-nominating Ben Bernanke as Fed Chairman?
The New Republic
Yes, this was a very sound decision. Bernanke has been creative and unorthodox at precisely the moment when the economy demanded these qualities from the Fed, and when a conservative, by-the-book approach would have likely sent us into a depression. Also, the case for continuity is overwhelming while the economy and financial markets are still fragile.
