Janet Yellen Reminds Me of Chauncey the Gardener

Posted by Larry Doyle on November 21, 2013 10:44 AM |

I do not think there is any doubt that Janet Yellen will be fully confirmed as our next chair of the Federal Reserve.

I have read plenty of material about Ms. Yellen but will admit that I have never heard her speak. After listening to her platitudes this morning, I was struck by the likeness of her delivery, message, and physical appearance to another individual who was thought to have real wisdom on our economy and monetary policy.

Who is that? Chauncey the gardener. I am only half kidding.

Let’s take a few minutes to listen to Ms. Yellen.

And now a few minutes more to listen to Chauncey.

What can I say? Do you agree?

Navigate accordingly.

    The part which Peter Sellers was playing was that of an idiot, but nobody realised. Does Janet Yellen realise that her testimony makes her sound like an idiot. How on earth does the good ‘ole USA find such people to hold important office. Do you ever wonder why the USA is falling behind China in terms of economic power? We all know that China is a centralised power which has little concern for the rights of the individual citizen. We grew up expecting better from the USA. How disappointed we have become. Your decline is now guaranteed.
