The Ballad of Ben Bernanke: Tragic Economic Error is Holding Him Back

Ben Bernanke is arguable the most well equipped Fed chairman America has ever seen, and I mean that sincerely!  His academic accomplishments are top notch; and his career as a public official is equally impressive. He has been a ranking member of some of the most influential and prestigious economics advisory councils and research groups in the nation. By all accounts, Ben is the best conceivable man for the job of Chief Central Banker!
