Personally, I endorse Joe Stiglitz’s view. I was surprised to see the other day that another Nobel Prize winning economist, Paul Krugman was assuming that Larry Summers was the increasingly favored candidate.
Whilst I respect Larry Summers intellectually, he comes across to me as smug and conceited; accordingly, I would worry about his style in a consensus building role.
I sense that if Janet Yellon wins then the financial markets will hit the stratosphere.
