Fed chiefs joke about all that power:Bernanke, Yellen, Volcker, Greenspan Meet
 USA TODAY  4/8/16

The four Federal Reserve chiefs who have guided the U.S. economy for the past 37 years – through double-digit inflation, prolonged prosperity, near Depression and halting recovery — gathered Thursday to put a human face on an institution that often appears both stately and inscrutable.

 In an extraordinary event that blended the central bank’s past and present, former chairmen Paul Volcker, Alan Greenspan and Ben Bernanke joined current Chair Janet Yellen in a public forum for the first time to kick off Volcker’s distinguished speaker program at International House in Manhattan. Volcker is chairman of the board of the nonprofit, which trains aspiring global leaders.
