New Federal Reserve Chairman Janet Yellen trudged up to Capitol Hill today to appear before the Senate Banking Committee and share a few thoughts on the U.S. economy and financial markets (note that this was originally scheduled for February 13, but was delayed due to snow). Some of the highlights are captured in this video from Reuters.
Of course, there was nothing new in anything Ms.Yellen said as she once again proved adept at talking a lot without really saying anything that everybody didn’t already know.
I’ve been meaning to look into her accent (she’s obviously from New York, but, being from Pennsylvania, all New Yorkers sound alike to me) and why her manner of speaking is so familiar, as if I’ve heard this many times before, for hours on end when I was much younger.
It didn’t take long to stumble upon Is it me or does Janet Yellen’s accent and intonation make her sound like a female Woody Allen?
Answer: No, it’s no just you – that’s exactly who she sounds like.
