Fed Chair Yellen's First Congressional Testimony - Live Feed

Tyler Durden's picture


We've seen the prepared remarks for both panels:

So this morning's "Monetary Policy and the State of the Economy" (Humphrey-Hawkins) hearing should be a somewhat contentious baptism of fire for Janet as the Q&A starts.

Can't believe it took me this long to realize it, but "Yellen" rhymes with "felon".

Just sayin'.

No she's awful for gold. This is a buying phase, we need her to kill gold whilst we can accumulate. Because that baby is going to head to the moon regardless of what she says.

Central banking is not going to survive another generation.  There will never be a gold-backed dollar.

Too bad losers.

You don't need a central bank to have a gold backed dollar.

The dollar will likely be linked to gold at some point in the future.  International trade settlement requires it, as much as we might not like that.

The best course would be for competing currencies to be legalized.  The US can issue a gold backed dollar if it wants.  People just won't trust it, having been burned very recently.

"Dat ain't right"

Ok, fine Maxine....WHAT??  Get it out.  Hurry up!

I would never have believed that such a squat little troll could be so well politically "tuned," saying very little of any substance, and committing to absolutely nothing.

Well done, PTB!

All a ruse, brain is churning at top speed with hardly a pause to spit out the words, one at a time.  But only sometimes.  What's the rule ?

She does the chicken head bob really well when she becomes uncomfortable.

Perhaps her slow manner of speaking is what got the job in the first place. The retards on the hill can finally understand what someone is saying. At the very least they can identify some words. That is good enough for most of them.
