The question about what Ben Bernanke would be doing now that he’s retired from the Fed has been answered. The ex-chairman of the Federal Reserve is the newest fellow at the Brookings Institution, one of the most influential “progressive” think tanks promoting world government (or “global governance,” the euphemism the internationalists prefer to use today).
“Today we at the Brookings Institution and its new Hutchins Center on Fiscal and Monetary Policy are excited to welcome Ben S. Bernanke as a distinguished Fellow in Residence,” announced David Wessel, director of the Hutchins Center, in his February 3 Brookings blog.
“Mr. Bernanke, of course, has just finished eight tumultuous years as chairman of the Federal Reserve,” Wessel continued. “He was sworn in as Fed chairman in early 2006 unaware that fissures were opening in the foundations of the U.S. economy and financial system.”
Wessel then goes on to laud Bernanke as the “rescuer-in-chief,” the indispensible man who saved the global economy. Says Wessel:
Two years later, he was rescuer-in-chief during the worst financial crisis in 75 years. His mantra: Whatever it takes. As Glenn Hutchins, vice chair of the Brookings board, put it at the recent Hutchins Center inaugural event: “Despite the massive deleveraging of the last few years, we are still deeply in debt to Ben Bernanke.”
