Presidents, politics, and the Federal Reserve Board governors: Is there a new PhD standard? – Debate Edition: The right direction on Title IX Sexual Harassment regulations – AEI12th July 2019
In the Trump administration, the path from citizen to nomination to Federal Reserve Board governor has been anything but smooth. Nominees have languished for years as the Senate exercised its due diligence and deliberative powers, and a hostile press sank the potential nominations of other individuals with a vigor more commonly reserved for watershed issues. Is there a new “PhD standard” for Fed governors? Is there evidence that the public will benefit if Fed governors are only picked from a select class of professional technocrats?
