22. Yellen was the most accurate on Fed reserve board in predicting the economy

The minutes of the federal reserve board are published after a delay. The board members made predictions about future economic results. Janet Yellen was the most accurate. Maybe she was just lucky but I think we should take that into account. She met her husband, George Akerloff, who later won the Nobel prize in economics, after both had been denied tenure. They took temporary jobs at the federal reserve until they could get new academic jobs, and met in the cafeteria there. They rose from that setback to become economics rock stars. I have for a long long time been a big fan of Janet Yellen. She will tell Biden the way it is, no matter what pressures are put on her.
