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.
