Whom Does Sen. Warren Want to Head the Fed?
Posted on Jul 28, 2013
Since taking office earlier this year, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass, has been a staunch consumer advocate, a champion of the middle class and a thorn in Wall Street’s side, which is why we should pay close attention to whom she’s backing to replace Ben Bernanke as head of the Federal Reserve.
Warren is among the numerous Senate Democrats who have signed a one-page letter urging the administration to appoint Fed Vice Chair Janet Yellen—and not former economic adviser Larry Summers, as reports have indicated is the president’s top choice—to the post.
