Trump to pick Jerome Powell as Federal Reserve chairman

President Trump reportedly will nominate Federal Reserve governor Jerome Powell to be the next chairman of the Federal Reserve, opting for stability and continuity at the central bank, an institution whose performance could define his economic record.

In Powell, Trump would have a nominee with a Republican pedigree to replace Janet Yellen at the Fed’s top position but maintain the course that has yielded success in the brief time that Trump and Yellen have served in their respective roles together. Trump will nominate Powell as soon as this week, the New York Times and Politico reported Monday.

Trump was harshly critical of Yellen on the campaign trail, but he recently has praised her as the unemployment rate has dropped to the lowest level since the dot-com boom and the stock market has floated to new heights. Last week Trump lavished praise on the Obama holdover but said that “you’d like to make your own mark.”

With Powell, Trump would have the Yellen policies without Yellen herself.

  1. I’m really enjoying the theme/design of your site. Do
    you ever run into any browser compatibility issues?
    A handful of my blog visitors have complained about my website

    Do you have any advice to help fix this issue?

  2. Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my
    apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a 40 foot drop, just so she can be
    a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
    I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
