  5. Do You Really Want To Know How Ben Bernanke Thinks? Also Larry Summers And Paul KrugmanRead the original story w/Photo

    Apr 6, 2015 | Seeking Alpha

    It makes no sense for Bernanke to: 1. Have pounded his chest about the success of QE; 2. Now be claiming that he never had any effect at all he was just seeking the natural rate; and 3. If this IS in fact the natural rate then it makes NO SENSE to suggest Summers is wrong on secular stagnation. I think the key is that Bernanke is-or should be-claiming not that his policies had no effect, but that they had no distortionary effect.

    Apr 5, 2015 | News Max

  9. John Galt Misunderstood Monetary OperationsRead the original story w/Photo

    Apr 5, 2015 | Seeking Alpha

    Paul Krugman points out an interesting Twitter discussion in which James Pethokoukis, a very good conservative economist, explains why many conservatives didn't support Ben Bernanke at the Fed: "[Because] many view Ben Bernanke as enabling Obama's spending and artificially propping up debt-heavy economy in need of Mellon-esque liquidation" "This looks an awful lot like an attempt to bail out fiscal policy, and such attempts call the Fed's independence into question." I can have fairly conservative views at times, but I think the helpful part about viewing the monetary system through an operational lens is that you are able to come to more objective conclusions that avoid so much of the political muddling.

    As the Federal Reserve moves closer to initiating one of the most long-awaited and widely predicted periods of rising short-term interest rates in the United States, many are asking how emerging markets will be affected. Indeed, the question has been asked at least since May 2013, when then-Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke famously announced that quantitative easing would be "tapered" later that year, causing long-term U.S. interest rates to rise and prompting a reversal of capital flows to emerging markets.
