    Ahhh… Calm, rational thought. How refreshing!

  2. Good for Bullard. I was really disappointed in Bullard weeks ago when he came out and said he wanted to be Fed Chair. How many well top economists don’t want to be Fed Chair?? But for Bullard to say so in response to a question clearly undercut not just Powell, but the independence of the Fed. The job of Chair shouldn’t be available till 2022.

    Bullard is no fool. He knows that the answers he gave in that interview disqualify him as Fed Chair in the eyes of Trump. And he went there anyway. Had he wanted to campaign for an early Fed nomination, he probably would have dissented at the last meeting, and voted for the 50 basis point cut. So the good news is that Bullard has decided he will not campaign for an early seat as Fed Chair by pandering to Trump.

    The bad news is that Judy Shelton has no such scruples.
