Meltzer: Bernanke has apparently changed his mind about independence
Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke once criticized Alan Greenspan for wading into politics and swore he would be independent; apparently, he’s had a change of heart, says Allan Meltzer, The Allan H. Meltzer University Professor of Political Economy. Meltzer argues that Bernanke compromised the Fed’s independence in 2008 with the bailout of AIG and its support for the takeover of Bear Stearns.

Fed news conferences a departure from tradition, says Meltzer
