Predicting the next Chair

Predict It – Federal Reserve Chair Predictions

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
