Bernanke again

January 29, 2010 1 comment

Not unexpected but still not great news. Bernanke will lead the Fed for another term.

Many of the senators voting against Bernanke and even those who voted for him argued along the lines of “better the devil you know”. Isn’t there something wrong and totally unnecessary with a vote when you only have one alternative? Isn’t that what the west used to criticize the USSR for when it came to their elections? Only one candidate.

How can the Senate vote on the head of the Fed if they only have one alternative? Off course they will vote for Bernanke no matter how much they don’t like him or how inappropriate he is to run the Fed.

Oh well. The market has to live with him for another term. At least we know the Fed will get it wrong … again. There is some comfort in that!
