Janet Yellen headed for the Hill this past week for what could be her last appearance before Congress. Of course, that prompted me to grace sweltering Manhattan with my presence to chime in and opine on her viewpoint of the world. As you will see in more than a few of the links below, Yellen’s confusion left me scratching my head.
 
The job market continues to strengthen and wage growth still can’t get off the floor. The economy has withstood as much as it can in the form of interest rate hikes and it’s time to get busy shrinking the balance sheet ‘appreciably,’ to borrow her term? ‘Egregious and unacceptable’ practices have occurred on her watch and yet no action has been taken.
 
The sensation was akin to being swallowed whole by inconsistency itself. If you have a moment, enjoy my jaunt across media outlets. Some are longer than others. But those asking the questions had done their homework and that’s always a plus for the gal on the receiving end.
