The Trump administration has indicated that they will select a Federal Reserve Chair within the month. Below is the Predict It prediction market for the top 6 candidates. Over the next couple of days, I’ll give an outline of each candidate … hopefully before the nomination.
The list includes four candidates from the Federal Reserve System:
- Jerome Powell, Board of Governors
- Janet Yellen, incumbent
- Neel Kashkari, President of the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis
- Kevin Warsh (former member of the Board of Governors)
And two from outside:
- John Taylor
- Gary Cohn
Check back this week for a summary of each candidate.
