Just imagine you're alone in a cabin in the woods, there is a thunderstorm rolling in, and you're hearing all sorts of sounds banging against the cabin. Your bed is but right up to the window and you're looking out at the forest which is lit by the occasional lightning flashes. Then a long multi-second lightning flash illuminates that face staring right back at you inside the cabin. Yep I just wet em.

Janet Yellen has been head of the Federal Reserve bank long enough that we no longer need to speculate as to her job performance. As we begin to critique her ability to perform we must remember perception is often just as important as reality. Another issue that comes into play is how you stack up or compare to the person who held the position previously, this often extends to style as much as it does to substance.

As expected it appears Janet Yellen has chosen to take us down the same the rabbit hole as Bernanke on a journey to prove that if we just continue doing what is not working, all will turn out fine. More on Yellen as the head of the Federal reserve in the article below.

She could be far, far homelier, but if she were honest and didn't represent and promote a corrupt organization and if she cared about the lives of regular Americans, I would be more than satisfied.  Truly I do not give a crap about her appearance or Bernanke's, which was not any better.  We're being ruined by their characters and their actions, not their looks.

Per the social science (such as it is), attractive women are far less likely to be hired for jobs of power and responsibility.  It is assumed that they are morons, no matter what their academic credentials are.  Men on the other had are far more likely to be hired if they are attractive.  If Yellen were attractive, they wouldn't have given her the job.  So get used to the idea of seeing a lot of homely women in the news, along with a lot of fakely-attractive photo-shopped women in the rest of the media.

I showed some young friends, recent college graduates (from a top three university whose undergrads are all perfect looking, albeit not by nature) some photos of "regular people" from media from the 1970s.  They were appalled at how ugly they were.  I told them that that is how average people look who haven't had plastic surgery and hair coloring and hair extensions and hair removals and make-up and and nose jobs and breast implants and tooth straightening.  They've never seen a photo of a model that wasn't photoshopped, and they've never known anyone in their social group who hadn't had it "all" done.  Homely people are like Martians to them.

I know I'm going to get junked all up and down the block for this one, but I kind of like Janet. Remember, she actually tapered and she continues to taper. That alone is enough to quiet some of the mumblings about "QE infinity."

Furthermore, I know it's not enough and it's coming too late and too slow to satisfy most ZHers, but considering Janet's background, her education, her peers, the pressure of the entire world focusing on her next move, and especially the demands coming from the do-nothing president and congress, I'm actually impressed that she made it this far. Perhaps sometime in the future, maybe after the next election cycle, she will be the one to finally toss the problem back to the congress and tell them that their fiscal difficulties aren't going to go away until they start balancing the budget and making realistic policy decisions.

If she does that I, for one, will be proud of her. We need whatever help we can get.

WHAT realistic policy decisions? There is no "realistic" policy to be pursued when levels of debt confound the very laws of physics. The only "realistic" policy at this point is a plan to manage however possible the social-political chaos that will attend a secular default.

Just embrace the fact that we are beyond the point of political or financial reform. Also embrace the fact that Yellen is a twilight figure--the shadow of our madness--whose task is to administer palliaitve care in the form of Fed propaganda to a system on death watch.

Thank you one and all for sharing your thoughts, especially those of you who remained civil (i.e Arius, Las Vegas).

The Fed is not going to disappear tomorrow. I do not like fiat money or fractional reserve banking as a theory any more than you do, but it's going to take a lot of changes before it stops being the way that 300 million Americans get up and go about their business.  I shouldn't have to mention (but apparently I do) that any proposed changes which are incapable of being implemented in the real world are nothing more than items in an intellectual history; that is to say, useless. One of the real-world changes that could get us moving incrementally in the right direction again is for the Fed to stop backstopping Congress, forcing the latter to make "realistic policy decisions."

By "realistic policy decisions" I meant changes to the nation's foreign and domestic policy, not monetary policy (although that will change too, it isn't the Congress' domain). I am specifically refering to the welfare state, immigration, wars and military spending, etc. You know, policy, that thing that governments do. America has been living in a fantasy world backstopped by Fed funny-money and it's time we came back down to reality.

These probelms will have to be addressed by somebody, somehow. It would be better for us to start making sound decisions as a nation than to just sit back and bet on the end of the world coming along and blanking the slate. If North Korea could survive for 60 years as a hermit kingdom, than the USA can survive for centuries as an oligarchy. The end of the world will not come fast enough to save any of us. We need to start acting.

Janet has it in her hands to do the right thing, to start the ball rolling. I am hoping that she does so and I will support her in that if at all possible.

You may not be naive, but you still believe in the possibility of change, willingly, on the part of Congress, the upper 10% financially as well as the 25 to 30 worldwide TBTF banks.

No change to the present system is willingly possible, for numerous political and financial reasons. If you are a regular reader of the Tylers, then you know these reasons. Let me cut to the chase on our current system and the FED.

The FED is the last line of defense for the world wide credit based financial system, the last backstop for large domestic and foreign based banks and the ultimate sugar daddy to the US Congress in funding any and all tax collections shortfalls that the country requires, without having to go back to the uninformed electorate, asking to raise taxes.

These are the reasons that willing change is NOT possible. The electorate are clueless. Most workers that still work are focusing on their daily lives, concentrating  on their jobs, family and numerous trivial pursuits, rather than demand any change.

GooseShtepping Moron - Finance isn't going away if the Federal Reserve does. Congress loves to continue to outsource to that private organization, it provides an addiditional figleaf to prolifergate spending. The Federal Reserve being a private bank loves the interest payments. The losers of this government outsourcing of debt is the people that must pay the interest.

In 2004 there were a lot of investors and economists that were calling for a debate in how the Federal Reserve was managing interest rates and not pulling the punchbowl of credit when the housing market was overheating. Alan Greenspan said there was no room for debate. The Federal Reserve could have told Congress and to the public it was going to support getting rid of bad actors in 2008, it could have restructured loans with small businesses. It could have capped interest rates at 7% for credit card holders instead of the mugging the general public took at 28%.
Whatever the value a central bank like the Fed does offer in terms of research or guidance is dwarfed by conflict of interest. It encourages boom bust cycles. This last bust and the great depression before it destroying an entire generations ability to grow financially for a couple of decades.

Declines happen in evolution, growth cannot be perpetual, pauses and reorganization are the natural order of life. But a central bank can distort this order by allowing a status quo to continue to party at massive taxpayer expense. Computer software can now give guidance to Congress and fig leaves are being ripped off by the mirror of the Internet these days. Why have such a middleman?

Please present an argument for a central bank like the fed. I will be civil and debate you. But as I said, my argument not against finance itself, lending has a valid place in business and economic growth.

I would never argue in favor of a central bank like the Fed. I do not like the Fed at all. I simply said it isn't going away tomorrow, and Janet has the ability to force Congress to act differently. That's all.

People are reading all sorts of things into what I wrote that I never actually wrote. If you just look at exactly what I said, I don't think there's anything that a sane person could object to.

The Federal Reserve says that Congress authorized them to control the issuance of currency in the US.  The Consitution says Congress has the ability to coin money for use inthe US.  I cannot seem to find an enumerated power that would allow Congress to authorize the Fed to do this.  Based on the 10th amendment, wouldn't that power fall to the states or to the people?

Don't get me wrong, I know it is a big criminal show.  I guess I am curious if anyone ever brought this up to Congress.  Ron Paul maybe?  Just askin...

Senator Warran is a progressive whose principle of rule is the state supervision of formerly private activity. 

She is no tribune of the people though the video portrays her that way. Nor does she advance a coherent critique of the current system of credit based money. Her argument is vulgar Picketty-ism: tax the rich so that they aren't so rich because inequality or something.

Not mentioned on this blog yet - but perhaps would have in the pre -sold out ZH version is the fact that the FED is tighter on a FLOW basis now since 4/23.  The FED is conducting daily TOMO operations in increasing size, now draining more that 190bil in daily overnight matched sales.  This operation in part is putting 'high' quality collateral into dealer hands, offsetting recent bill paydowns and smaller Tbond auction sizes adn draining reserves and liquidity directly from money market funds.   The stop out rate on these operations is 5bp, greater than the yield on the 3mon Tbill.  Addtionally, the FED annouced Friday Term Deposit operations where they will 'test' drain 10bil a week for the next 8 weeks at no more than 30bp, which is just 8bp less yield than the 2yr note.   The fact is the FED is tighter on a FLOW basis, while continuing to taper LSAPs.  This is significant and the Tylers are ignoring it.  But BTFD anyway.....
