Senator Bob Corker \(R-Tenn.\) blasted Federal Reserve chief Ben Bernanke today, calling him "an enabler of some perverse financial system addiction" in a Financial Times op-ed.
"It would be helpful to have a Fed chairman who acted with a greater sense of humility about what monetary policy can achieve. Mr. Bernanke’s comfort with managing long-term interest rates and his unwillingness to stand up and say that there are limits to what monetary policy can accomplish is disturbing, to say the least," Corker writes.

Corker argues that financial markets have become too focused around Federal Reserve policy under Bernanke.
