Princeton Prof. Bernanke Chosen to Replace Greenspan
The chairman of Princeton University's Economics Department, Professor Ben Bernanke, has been appointed to replace Alan Greenspan as Chairman of the Federal Reserve. Blogosphere buzz from what I've read is in favor.
Tonight at dinner, my husband's elderly but very alert, retired physician uncle asked me twice, do you know the Princeton Prof. who will replace Greenspan? I hadn't seen the news, nor had I gone on my usual blog run, so guess which Princeton Professor my mind retrieved? Cornel West! I didn't say a word, knowing very well West is not an economist.
