Ben Bernanke, One-on-One With Janet Yellen

Dr. Bernanke interviewed Dr. Yellen on her time at the Fed and her observations about the current state of the economy

On Tuesday, February 27, The Brookings Institute hosted a discussion between Dr. Bernanke and Dr. Yellen on her career, her time at the Fed, her observations about the current state of the economy and the challenges that confront us.

These sorts of interviews are truly historic. These two leaders of the Federal Reserve maneuvered the US and global economy through the most tumultuous period in the last 80 years. Mrs Yellen leaves the US economy with full employment and price stability. I do not know what more could be expected of her. She has done an outstanding job and why the policy approach may have been unconventional, the results are not without question.
