It may have been too obviious of a conflict of interest if he went to work directly for some bank, so PiMPCo, Citidull, etc.

Bernanke has a direct line to Yellen, so that's alright.

Fascism on parade.  Move along....nothing to see....and nothing can or will be done about it.

BTW....Bernanke doesn't need the all these turnstile (politcal/financial revolving door) fascists.   It's all about making connections.  Connections are how you create cash flow and the more connections means you have multiple cash streams at your disposal.  One cash stream dries up...oh have a few more at your disposal.  And you can still name drop the first connection from the first cash stream in order to acquire a new connection and a new cash stream.

Does this once and for all firmly define Bernanke as a "looter"?

It's as if someone hired a former mob boss to provide insight into how the mob operates.

Must be payback for all those "right before the number" phone calls. It can't be for his not so on the money calls about subprime and housing. Maybe it was for his "courage" to counterfeit, er ah print.

And we thought Bernanke was going into personal finance.

Bernanke has proven himself to be a bigger whore than even Jaime Dimon.

I thought that would be impossible.

Look on the bright side. He is not running for office.

When will Bernanke be named advisor to Goldman, Sachs and Lloyd?

Oh, wait, I keep forgetting that he bailed out the banks and hedge funds and starved savers and pensioners of income for the better part of a decade in order to save the job of the little guy at the local barbershop.

Can someone please tell me how this is wrong? He is no longer affiliated with the FED. Doesn't he have the right to work for whomever he wants?

J J Pettigrew's picture

ever hear  of deferred compensation?

Well it aint deferred anymore..

RealityCheque's picture

"He is no longer affiliated with the FED"

Really? So he has no contacts, no buddies, no old favors left at the place he used to the boss?

This may help you:

Indeed I will make those of the synagogue of Satan, who say they are Jews and are not, but lie—indeed I will make them come and worship before your feet, and to know that I have loved you.


Maybe this is the prophetic "Banksters need to repay us"??

Bernanke, who is your boss?

GRDguy's picture

Name-dropping window dressing.  Bernake isn't any smarter now than he was while teaching before the Fed. The easiest way to screw the world is to find someone wrong-headed, then reward them ever more for being wrong. Wrong here means not doing good for the 99%. Kinda like being a counselor to a Mafia godfather, but against the general public.
