    “I am pleased to inform you that I have just granted a full Pardon to 85 year old American patriot Sheriff Joe Arpaio. He kept Arizona safe!” Donald J. Trump‏ @realDonaldTrump 7:00 PM – 25 Aug 2017
    (Mario Draghi, right, the president of the European Central Bank, with Janet L. Yellen, the Federal Reserve chairwoman, and Haruhiko Kuroda, the governor of the Bank of Japan)

    “Recent commentary has described Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen’s Jackson Hole, Wyo. speech, where she vigorously supports Dodd-Frank regulations, as highly political and atypical for a Fed chair. It is. But it is a remarkable break from tradition for another reason: It reads like a premature victory lap for Fed regulation. Her confidence in the Fed’s regulatory prowess will surely look misplaced when the next crisis reveals that financial stability is just another central planner pipe dream.” http://thehill.com/blogs/pundits-blog/economy-budget/348738-fed-chair-yellen-takes-premature-victory-lap-with-latest
    President Trump gets to nominate a Fed chair this fall, for a four-year term starting in February. As Candidate Trump, he accused the incumbent chair, Janet Yellen, of propping up Barack Obama’s Democrats by conspiring to keep money artificially cheap, boosting stocks. Since winning the White House, he has praised her for the same policies, which now favor him as the incumbent, as long as the economy keeps growing. Reversing a threat to ditch her, Trump earlier this summer told the Wall Street Journal that Yellen “is not toast” and that he might keep her. …The odds Yellen stays: 1 in 6, according to a recent poll of the National Association of Business Economists. The front-runner at 1 in 3 is, like Yellen, a Democrat: former Goldman Sachs president-turned-Trump adviser Gary Cohn. The poll was taken before Cohn criticized the administration’s response to pro-Nazi and anti-Jewish demonstrators in Charlottesville, Va., criticism that provoked Breitbart News, run by former Trump aide and self-described economic nationalist Steve Bannon and funded by hedge-fund billionaire Robert Mercer, to headline Cohn’s “dump on” Trump as part of an “establishment” effort to capture the president’s agenda. http://www.philly.com/philly/blogs/inq-phillydeals/not-toast-will-trump-replace-yellen-at-the-fed-20170828.html
