The fact that Larry Summers is even being considered, and seriously is a bad sign. President Obama’s decisions are unfathomable, though I am concerned and believe there is greater than 50%, say 65% probability, that Summers will be selected.

I am concerned for the same reasons as everyone else. As of three weeks ago, no one wanted Summers as Fed governor, as indicated by online reader polls by the WSJ, Fox, NY Times and yes, Mother Jones.

Everyone does realize the Fed is not a government entity – correct?

Valerie has already decided. It’s Yellen. End of discussion.

We’re asking them to do the job of fiscal stimulus when they only have monetary tools to use. Congress needs to grow up and do their own dirty work so the Fed can focus on what they do best: manage inflation.

It is for these reasons (global abdocation by elected officials) we see monetary purchasing power fall steadily across developed economies. The Carry Trade Index of G7 counties has jumped 30K since the June taper-on mis-speech by Chairman Bernanke (see chart below):

The Fed Chair in a crisis is not less important than in normal times. We needed a better Fed Chair in 2008; Bernanke batted about .199, far from 1.000!

Well, The Bernanke seems to think they do. This is the man who thought “subprime is contained.”

“Druce” is asking the critical question. The idea that bubbles can’t be seen and that it is best to deal with them after they pop – do you sign on to that Felix????

Which is a serious problem, but not the same sort of problem faced in 2008. And one for which the Fed is not especially well suited–it has little direct impact at the wages-and-jobs level.
