Ben Bernanke News Conference Wednesday is a Dream Come True

A fairy tale comes true this week. After years of speculation, finally we will witness a long-awaited ceremony that leaves little room for mistakes: Not the Royal Wedding, but Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke holding a news conference Wednesday.

For the first time since the central bank was founded in 1913, the head of the Fed will hold a news conference just hours after making a decision on interest rates.

Greenspan was like god; but Bernanke says "Remember who's god!"

Back in the 90s, Alan Greenspan was like a god. Every word he uttered caused billions of dollars to flow one way or the other like a tide.

These days, the fed chairmanship has slipped to a lower level than supreme being.

Bernanke must feel like he has an obligation to remind us all just who is god around here. And its not Barack.

this will be interesting.

this will be interesting.

Calming Americans Fears

Chairman Bernanke is not using this to provide transparency about FED actions. He is simply trying to sidestep congress and provide the appearance of transparency while not under oath.

Here is what I predict his press conference will look like.


Too funny...

My laugh for the evening.


I think there's a good chance your prediction will come to fruition!! :)
