Bush's Other Legacy
Amid the Supreme Court hubbub, comparatively minimal conversational bandwidth is being spent on Bush's looming nomination to succeed Alan Greenspan, who will finish his final term as Fed chairman at the end of January.
Given that Greenspan has spanned 6 Presidential administrations and moves markets with every shift in intonation, his replacement has the capacity to shape the American and global economy for decades.
The short list:
- Ben Bernanke - Bush economic advisor, former Fed governor
- Martin Feldstein - Reagan advisor, Harvard professor, rumored model for Mr. Burns
- Glenn Hubbard - Bush advisor, Columbia B-School dean, designer of delicious 2003 tax cuts
- Roger Ferguson - Fed governor/vice chairman
- Donald Kohn - Fed governor/lifer
My money's on Monty. Er... Marty.
