Who gets your vote?
Best = Volker
Worst = GreenScam... though Bennie could end up worse.
I believe we have a winner.
That's interesting. Volcker was ridiculed tremendously at the time for his role in getting us off the gold-standard as well as his hard stance on inflation.
I suspect that he is considered great now because inflation is considered a problem, but his actions caused more protesting than any other.
Some would still criticize his influence on suspending gold convertability. I guess all that really matters is what the current issues are though.
I would say Volcker now.
I would've said Greenspan if he hadn't ever cut rates below about 3%. The earlier part of Greenspans tenure I think he made some great decisions.
Bernanke isn't really shining so far.
I would like to read about Volker's role in relation to gold. Do you have a link?
sometimes not being loved as the big dick of the banking system is for the best.
